I think you're playing with fire here. Subversion has depended on
symbols in the apr/apr-util shipped within httpd 2.0.47 and 2.0.48 for
over a year. (apr-0.9.5).

That's surprising to me... I would have expected errors about unexpected
symbols. Then again, are you sure that you built mod_dav_svn?

Hm, I guess so. I'm surprised you've had no problems.

You really should be using bdb 4.2; it's faster and seems to have fewer
bugs. It also has the ability to clean up its own logfiles, which is a
big convenience to admins.
