mod_dav_svn and db4-2 issues.

I seem to have worked myself into a pickle with subversion on SuSE 9.1
I had subversion and apache working nice and dandy on the machine with
SuSE 9.0. Since I upgraded it to 9.1 and db4-2, all components of
subversion work fine except the mod_dav_svn piece.

The problem stays the same whether I install using apt-get, or if I
download the subversion source tar ball and compile myself.

The problem is that whenever I try to access the subversion repository
via a webdav client (such as TortoiseSVN), messages show up in the
apache error log to the effect that the module was compiled with db4-1
but is running with db4-2. I have verified that only db4-2 exists on
the system.

Doing an ldd on mod_dav_svn.so shows that it is indeed referencing
db4-1. However, I cannot find traces of db4-1 anywhere else on the
system. I know the apache system is linked against db4-2. Running
apu-config --libs returns:

-lgdbm -ldb-4.2 -lexpat

I have db-4.2.52-85 and db-devel-4.2.52-85 installed on the system.

I have googled and scratched my head bald over this one and cannot
figure out why the apache modules for subversion always insist on using
db4-1. I badly need to get subversion going for maintaining a software
repository for some upcoming projects. Any help out of this conundrum
would be very much appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
