The complete info is available in the INSTALL file still you can make use of following switches
./configure --prefix=/usr/local/apache2 --enable-dav --enable-dav-fs --enable-so
make && make install
./configure --with-apr=/usr/local/apache2 --with-apr-util=/usr/local/apache2 --with-apxs=/usr/local/apache2/bin/apxs
Hope this helps.In case it doesn't make use of subversion and subversion dependency source in which case you don't have to specify the apr/apr-utils path separately since it is compiled as part of subversion application.I used subversion-1.4.2.tar.gz && subversion-deps-1.4.2.tar.gz

The --with-xxxx options are very confusing. Some people use --with-apr

--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
