I don't think any patching is necessary, from apu_want.h:

#ifdef APU_WANT_DB

#include <db.h>

#undef APU_WANT_DB

As I understand it the system apr-util uses BDB 4.1 so APU_HAVE_DB
will be defined, and that #include will be OK as long as David's
4.2 BDB provides a header called db.h.

As I understand it the problem is not that the system apr-util is too
old, but that the system BDB (4.1) is too unreliable. David wants to
build libsvn_fs_base against his own 4.2 BDB, without having to
rebuild all of apr-util, httpd, php, etc. He wants apr-util to remain
linked against BDB 4.1, with libsvn_fs_base linked against BDB 4.2.
