RE: SVN Version Mismatch

I got it all worked out now. My newly compiled Apache 2.0.59 for
whatever reason appears to have been using mod_dav_svn module from the
default RedHat apache installation. Not sure how the 1.3.2 version of
mod_dav_svn got in there but it was there.

I removed all the RedHat default apache installation stuff and
recompiled Subversion insuring to point it at the appropriate apxs
script, then made sure my httpd.conf was pointing at the mod_dav_svn in
my new version of Apache.

It is all great now: Powered by Subversion version 1.4.3 (r23084).

You did tell it where your apxs script is when you configured
Subversion? That's how it would know where to put the new module.

You did stop and then start Apache again after compiling and
installing the new Subversion? If you don't, the old module will
still be in memory.

At least part of Subversion 1.3.2 clearly is (or, at least, was) on
the box. Maybe it came with your OS distribution.
