There are several binary distributions of Subversion for Mac OS X,
and it compiles just fine using DarwinPorts and presumably with Fink
as well. So it shouldn't be that hard to get it working.

Have you already tried without running autogen.sh? You should only
need autogen.sh if you're trying to build from a checkout of the
Subversion repository. You don't need to run autogen.sh with released
source tarballs.

You are apparently also configuring with --prefix=/usr/local or
something like that?

Is /usr/local/apr/lib a symlink that points to itself or its parent
directory, or something odd like that?
