I think you're going to need to build from source to fix this. You
technically don't need the absolute latest Subversion to do it, but I
would recommend using head of Subversion trunk right now. I'm not
sure how far back before Subversion stops being able to take advantage
of the new APR functionality...

... which brings me to the important point, that what you really need
is probably a newer APR, I *think* maybe one of the 1.0.x candidates
(that's an APR version number, not a Subversion number). Visit
apr.apache.org and poke around.

Sorry you got bit by this one. In the future, as new versions of both
Subversion and APR become the norm, it won't be a problem, but right
now, it will involve a bit of inconvenience for you.

I don't know.
