I believe the issue is that the subversion code cannot depend on
apr-1.0 b/c the end result might not be backwards compatible when
talking to/dealing with a subversion server or client that was
compiled against apr-0.9.6. That's the best info I could find on the

If you are building your own server/client pieces and they all use
apr-1.0 (or higher) then I imagine you are set. Hopefully someone
else will chime in with a more authoritative answer.

Against 2.0.54 with almost all the same configure settings as you (I
don't have swig or bdb installed), make check still fails with one
error for the translate-test.

Where does one get apache 2.1.5-dev? I looked at the snapshots page
and other bits of the apache httpd website but didn't see anything
obvious. Since that appears to be the only (relevant) difference
between my build and yours, you might want to try leaving out the "--
with-apr[-util]" lines in your configure script and seeing what you get.

Admittedly, that doesn't seem like it will solve the problem since it
seems more like it has to do with the tests setting the
DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH incorrectly. From your log, it looks like you've
already installed 1.2 in /usr/local/subversion120. What happens if
you remove that directory before configuring, making, and make checking?

Probably not an issue, as noted above.
