This should be part of the FAQ as well. Not everybody builds apache.

I think the trick in this situation (though I haven't tried it yet
myself), is to tell users to configure/build/install the bundled apr and
apr-util within the svn tarball with the appropriate BDB args.

The goal is to get an *installed* libapr-util on your system that is
linking to BDB 4.2. Building apache is only one route to that goal.
Once you've achieved that goal, svn's own ./configure will ask the
installed apr-util for BDB flags.
