You should not have edited the regex. The configure script was
functioning correctly before you edited it, and now is not
functioning correctly.

The problem reported in that forum thread relates to the fact that,
at the time (in the days of Subversion 1.3.1), the regex correctly
identified APR versions 0.9.5 thru 0.9.9, and then APR 0.9.10 was
released and was no longer recognized as supported, though it should
have been. This problem was already fixed in Subversion long ago, and
Subversion 1.4.3 already correctly recognizes APR versions 0.9.7 thru

Some time since that forum posting was made, Subversion was changed
to no longer support APR 0.9.5 and 0.9.6. By editing the regex as you
have done, you have tricked the Subversion configure script in to
accepting your version of APR 0.9.5, though Subversion no longer
works with that version.

Please update to at least APR 0.9.7.
