Thanks; that's reassuring to hear. Is a low-diskspace situation part
of the regression test suite? (I looked briefly through the
subversion/tests source but didn't get oriented well enough to answer
this question.)

Well, apr-config --version shows 0.9.6, but if I cd to the directory
in which I built subversion 1.4.3, apr/apr-config --version shows
0.9.12. How can I confirm that svn/svnserve/mod_dav_svn will find the
more current apr lib(s)? (I built from a directory with both the
subversion tarball and the subversion dependencies tarball.)
