Can't do that, at least I don't see how, I'm trying to build something
that works on WBEL3/RHEL3 "out-of-the-box", that doesn't use the BDB
4.1.25 that comes with that distro.

After I was clued in with the info from above I sucesfully eliminated the
*Subversion* reference to -ldb but APR or APR-UTIL still try to link in
with that library. I guess I'll have to build with that library but
hopefully the --without-berkeley-db reference in Subversion will tell the
Subversion build not to use it so the user won't be able to use

...Whew! This is sure complicated!...
