Hi Erik,

Thanks for your kindly reply.

It may not be the problem of APR for I tried to compile the latest APR
(1.2.x) with SVN and the same error occured.

I guess there is nothing to do with absolute or relative paths. I
checkouted the repository using the command like this:

svn co https://aaa.bbb.ccc/aaa/bbb/ccc

or

svn up https://....

Best regards!

Sincerely,
Alex Zhu
