I tested over fsfs and bdb on all 3 ra layers(file, http(neon), svn),
testsuite has passed successfully on my Redhat Linux(2.6.9-5.EL).

I used the apr-0.9.17 and apr-util-0.9.15 instead of the apr that came
along with deps package.

I am not sure how to sign, will figure that out.

With regards
Kamesh Jayachandran
