I know.

Here is an example of the wording I'm picking up on.

 1. Apache Portable Runtime 0.9.7 or 1.X.X (REQUIRED)

      Whenever you want to build any part of Subversion, you need the
      Apache Portable Runtime (APR) and the APR Utility (APR-util)
      libraries. These are included in the Subversion dependency package -
      if you are building from a source tarball and wish to use the versions
      of APR and APR-util included there, just unpack the dependency package
      and skip ahead to the next requirement.
