Re: configure fails to find Berkeley DB (subversion 1.0.0)

I should double-check things before opening my big mouth (out typing
with my metaphorically big hands).

We had downloaded apr & apr-util from the apache project's CVS tree,
which is what requires autoconf to produce the configure script.
Subversion's copy of apr-util DOES indeed come with it's own configure.

Sorry to bother.
