After screwing my head back on straight I was trying to get two
different versions of APR and APR-UTIL working with Apache and SVN.

It appears that Apache dictates what version of APR* should be used to
compile SVN with so that the modules speak the same language. Makes
sense doesn't it.

My exact versions that caused my above errors were:
  httpd: APR*=0.9.7 (comes with the 2.0.55 tarball)
  svn: APR*=1.1.x (from source)

The moral of the story is don't do this.

Use the "--with-apxs=/path/to/bin/apxs" flag and the scripts should
discover the required APR* programs.
