The Subversion team does not distribute any compiled binaries. So,
what did you compile it against? Or: what unofficial Subversion
binary did you install? As far as I know, all the unofficial binaries
available at the download page use APR 0.9. Also, Subversion still
ships with APR 0.9. If you want APR 1.2, you probably need to build
it yourself.
