What makes you say it's unknown? If the function wasn't there then
you would get a linker error, not this kind of problem. What seems to
be happening is that APR is failing to find your temp directory.
Something within that function is causing it to return an error.

If you build Subversion with --enable-maintainer-mode it will include
more information in the error, including the underlying APR error
code, which might be helpful.
