AFAIK our build simply doesn't support this configuration. Basically we
have three ways of building on Unix:

    * shared: all SVN libraries are shared libs, Apache modules link to
      the shared libs
    * static: all SVN libraries are static libs, Apache modules don't
      get built at all (there seemed to have been support for
      --static-apache at some time, but it's probably gone to pot)
    * --enable-all-static: supposed to build completely statically
      linked SVN binaries, but it doesn't work on HP-UX because some of
      the system libraries only come in shared versions. Of course,
      Apache modules don't get build here, either.

I suppose someone could change the static build to produce loadable
statically linkesd Apache modules.
