That's correct.

Many, many more people were continually burned by the problem of apache
and subversion using *different* versions of db. If you want to use
mod_dav_svn, then Apache and Subversion must use the exact same version
of BerkeleyDB. We accomplished that goal by having both programs ask
apr-util for the DB build information.

No, this was a deliberate design decision that tooks months to discuss
and fix. See issues 1477, 1479, and r7560.
