Configure just told you so: --without-apr equals --with-apr=no, but,
that won't work: you need to pass it a directory.

I'm sorry? The configure line you used above is illegal: you can't
build subversion without APR and APR-UTIL: they are the libraries
which make Subversion the cross platform application it is. They take
care of lots of platform differences in a unified way.

You need to build with APR and APR-UTIL... (Though you don't need to
build with apxs or apache.)
