libapr0 is unlikely to be APR 1.2.x. It's much more likely to be APR
0.9.x: hence the 0 in "libapr0". I don't know why Debian is calling
it 2.0.55. There is no such thing as APR 2.0.55. You may confirm this
by looking at theAPR web site and/or asking on their mailing list:


You'll have to ask the Debian folks why they're lying about the
version number.

If you're not using Apache for serving your repository, and you can
get APR 1.2.x to be used only for building Subversion, then that's
what I'd do.
