The problem is that the correct cflags are not being used when calling
swig, it needs APR's cflags so that all the ifdefs work out. You
should be able to run 'apr-config --cflags' or 'apr-config --cppflags'
to see the correct flags, and then modify the makefile to pass them to

This has been fixed in a more "correct" way in more current versions
of svn, but they have not yet been released, for the time being you
should be able to work around it via the method I just suggested
