--with-apxs --with-apr --with-apr-util - what do I need?

I am having trouble compiling Subversion-1.4.0 with Apache-2.2.2
as supplied on Fedora Core 5. From other correspondence, I have
learned that the problem is to get a mod_dav_svn.so based on the
same libraries as httpd.

The --with-xxxx options are very confusing. Some people use --with-apr
and sometimes also --with-apr-util, others specify --with-apxs alone.

--with-apr pointed at the only apr-config on the machine didn't help
    there was a segfault because of SVN's mod_dav_svn. Removing the SVN
    httpd .conf file restored normal use of the webserver.

--with-apxs pointed to /usr/bin/apxs (the only one) I broke Apache.
    There was a segfault that didn't go away when I removed the Apache
    .conf file for SVN. The only solution I can see is to re-install Apache.
   Should this option have crippled another application like this?
   A warning is in order if it is that dangerous.

Can someone explain, better than the configure file, which of these
options we need under what circumstances and how to figure out the
correct settings?
