So this is now all sorted out, I could build shared libraries from
current 1.5.0 svn and have apr libraries that work with mingw. The fix
even made it into the current release of apr, which is extra nice.

So now one can build apr+subversion using Visual C++ and then can create
mingw import libraries using reimp tool from mingw or the
pexports/dlltool in case of the apr library because of the differences
between VC++ and mingw when using the _stdcall compiler switch. For
those interested the instructions how to create the libs are here:
http://www.mingw.org/MinGWiki/index.php/MSVC-MinGW-DLL

I could now build KDevelop4 with subversion support, unfortunately I
couldn't yet test wether it actually works due to some other problems
with KDE4 on win32.

Thanks for the help DJ.
