Is that different from the Python that comes bundled with Mac OS X?
My /usr/bin/python is merely a symlink to /System/Library/Frameworks/

That looks like you've already got a broken apr install in place.
Others on the list might be able to shed some light on that, but I'd
start by clearing out everything that Subversion installs and running
install again.

OK that works fine for me. Do you want my binaries :)
