know the answer or am unavailable to answer it.

You still didn't say what OS you're on or what version of Apache
you're using. Since you mention RPMs, I'm guessing you're on some
kind of Linux.

You were using APR 0.9.12, and are now using APR 1.2.8. Is this on
the client or on the server? If on the server, at least one of these
was certainly wrong. You must use a version of APR that is compatible
with the version of Apache you're using. Apache 2.0.x requires APR
0.9.x. Apache 2.2.x requires APR 1.2.x. And as I said, Subversion on
the server must be built against the same version of APR that Apache
uses.

What about the version of APR on the Subversion client? Is it new
enough?
