Thankyou for reporting this bug - and yes, it is a bug.

Re-using the name of an APR --enable-foo option for our own purposes is
incompatible with supporting integrated builds of APR, so I guess we
will need to rename our option.

This won't affect the 1.3.0 release process, because this bug is very
low priority, as the --enable-dso option is really only of use to
packagers who wish to decouple the BDB/neon dependency from the main
subversion package, and packagers will want to build against an
externally packaged APR.r
