the one I'm using on Debian is libapr0 (2.0.55) but there's also
if I woudl go with libapr1 (1.2.7) I would also be able to install
so libapr0 is from Apache sources (some sort of snapshot of APR 1.2.x relabeled
to have the same version-string as Apache itself) and I could use
libapr1 and libaprutil1
instead which is the real deal (vanilla 1.2.7) as I don't want to use
mod_dav_svn anyway, right?
