One problem is the inconsistent handling of the broken httpd versions.
Using 2.2.25, 2.4.5 and 2.4.6 leads to a build failure while running
configure. Using 2.2.26 and 2.4.9 allows the build but raises a runtime
XFAIL. I'm not sure how Subversion should handle a broken Apache; if
the user has an old Subversion installed, one that did not do the
detection, should we stop upgrades to a newer Subversion with security
fixes?

Putting the code in davautocheck.sh means that it triggers for

   make davautocheck

but not for

   make check BASE_URL=http://...

Perhaps we could move the code from davautocheck.sh to apache.m4. Have
apache.m4 set a make variable containing the version number and add a
make rule to export the value of the make variable in an environment
variable.
