I assume "Apache-APR-2.0.55" means "Apache 2.0.55 with included APR,"
much as the Subversion distribution has an included APR. This is
because both projects require APR.

Subversion 1.3.x can use either APR 0.9.x or APR 1.2.x. An advantage
of using APR 1.2.x is the aforementioned ability to handle files (and
therefore commits) of larger than 2 GiB.

AFAIK, Apache 2.0.x requires APR 0.9.x and Apache 2.2.x requires APR
1.2.x. Subversion and Apache must be built with the same version of
APR. Therefore, if you want big commits and therefore APR 1.2.x, you
must use Apache 2.2.x.
