It looks like that the linker (when compiling apr-util) can't find the
location of your BDB libs.

Use something like that, or put the location of lib in

env LDFLAGS="-L/srv/svntest/svntest/inst/db/4.3.27/lib" \
    LD_LIBRARY_PATH="/srv/svntest/svntest/inst/db/4.3.27/lib" \
    "/srv/svntest/svntest/svn/svn_trunk/configure" \
        "--prefix=/srv/svntest/svntest/inst/svn_trunk" \
        ... # rest of options

In the above case, the BDB has been installed with
  --prefix "/srv/svntest/svntest/inst/db/4.3.27"

Are you compiling with external APR and APR-UTIL, or are you using in
tree version of those? If you get ARP-UTIL to compile with BDB 4.3,
then you could use same settings for SVN, it should be faster to debug
apr-util alone, even when you are using in tree version at the end of
the day. You could also specify for apr-util that it should use 4.3
by "--with-bdm=db43":

env LDFLAGS="-L/srv/svntest/svntest/inst/db/4.3.27/lib" \
    LD_LIBRARY_PATH="/srv/svntest/svntest/inst/db/4.3.27/lib" \
    "/srv/svntest/svntest/apr-util/apu-0.9.x/configure" \
        "--with-dbm=db43" \
        "--with-berkeley-db=/srv/svntest/svntest/inst/db/4.3.27" \

This should speed up detection a little bit.

I am afraid that if the root of your problems was that your linker
didn't find BDB 4.3, using BDB 4.2 won't help.
