Ok.

    % ldd =svnadmin | grep apr
            libaprutil-0.so.9 => /usr/local/lib/apache2/libaprutil-0.so.9 (0x280f6000)
            libapr-0.so.9 => /usr/local/lib/apache2/libapr-0.so.9 (0x28326000)
    % svnadmin create /tmp/testrepos
    % zcat /local/backup/svn/svndump-private-2005-01-22.gz | svnadmin load /tmp/testrepos
    ...
    ------- Committed revision 495 >>>
    % svn co file:///tmp/testrepos/trunk
    ...
    A trunk/etc/cricketconf/cricket-config/systemperf/ppe
    zsh: segmentation fault (core dumped) svn co file:///tmp/testrepos/trunk

So sadly, it still breaks even on a brand new repository. Retrying with
an fsfs repository instead of a bdb one produces exactly the same
results.

What's disconcerting is that when I compiled the port with the
WITH_MAINTAINER_DEBUG option[1], the problem goes away. I'll try
recompiling with just "-g" in CFLAGS, so at least I can get some useful
info out of gdb...

Thanks,

[1] Enables --enable-maintainer-mode and --enable-maintainer-mode and
puts "-g" into CFLAGS.
