Maybe it never did, but I sure thought so. I cannot tell from the
history of gen-make.py. Perhaps that would not be the file to look

Me too (I thought). It seems APR-Util needs to be built with BDB
support included though, and I cannot find any documentation about how
you do that with the Windows build. The generic Windows build process
for these tools is pretty easy, it just seems like it does not do what
SVN needs.

You get errors when building libsvn_fs_base. Things like redefinition
of macro APU_HAVE_DB and various syntax errors.

No, this is the pre-built download.
