From tests.log:

That looks like an APR problem, apr_snprintf appears to have output a
literal "%ld" rather than interpreting it as an format specifier. I
don't know what would cause that, perhaps APR was built with the wrong
options? Something to do with 32/64 bit support? Or large file
support?

APR is a dependency of both Subversion and Apache and they need to use
APRs that are compatible, in almost all cases that means Apache and
Subversion using the same APR. --with-apxs is the flag that causes
Subversion to build with Apache so my first guess is that you have
multiple APRs that are incompatible.
