Apache segfault on startup

Hi all,

I cannot seem to compile the ra_dav module so Apache can use it. If I
enable mod_dav_svn in my Apache config file, I get a segfault like
this in Apache's main error.log:

[Wed Dec 20 14:33:53 2006] [notice] child pid 22917 exit signal
Segmentation fault (11)

This occurs when I hit any VHOST. I haven't even enabled my SVN VHOST yet.

I originally posted my problem on the dev list, and was kindly
redirected here. The original message can be read here:

I followed David and John's suggestions (use --with-apxs, --with-apr
an --with-apr-util on svn's configure), but I still get the same

config.log says:

APACHE_INCLUDES=' -I/usr/local/apache2/include'

My Apache config.nice:
"./configure" \
"--with-apr=/usr/local" \
"--with-apr-util=/usr/local" \
"--with-ssl" \
"--with-z" \
"--enable-dav" \
"--enable-default" \
"--enable-proxy" \
"--enable-proxy-balancer" \
"--enable-rewrite" \
"--enable-deflate" \
"--enable-dir" \
"--enable-ssl" \
"--disable-userdir" \
"--disable-include" \
"--enable-so" \
"--enable-mods-shared=all" \
"--prefix=/usr/local/apache2" \

And my Subversion config.nice:
'./configure' '--with-apxs=/usr/local/apache2/bin/apxs' \
  '--with-ssl' '--enable-ssl' '--enable-shared' \
  '--with-apr=/usr/local/bin/apr-config' \
  '--with-apr-util=/usr/local/bin/apu-config' \
  '--enable-maintainer-mode' '--enable-debug' "$@"

$ uname -a
Linux debian 2.6.8-2-386 #1 Tue Aug 16 12:46:35 UTC 2005 i686 GNU/Linux

Apache 2.2.3, Subversion 1.4.2, both are from tarballs.

After compiling Subversion, I can serve my repositories using ra_svn
and ra_local just fine.

Can anyone spot where I'm making an error ?

Thank you very much for your time !
