Bad news: the latest subversion is incompatible with the apache plugin
we've been using.

I've built apache before, as well as APR, but I'm not sure I want to
saddle my successor with that.

I built a new mod_dav_svn for the version of apache already on the
system, but that just segfaults. I'm pretty sure both apache and my
mod_dav_svn were built against the same APR, but subversion's
configure script complained about the APR being too old until I gave
it a path to apxr2.

Am I correct in thinking that my options are:
1) Plow ahead with the APR and apache (and subversion, with the new
APR) compiles
2) Go back to the old subversion, and just live with the potentially
corrupted repo that doesn't seem to be preventing modern builds
3) Do a tar | ssh tar despite the word size and slight operating
system difference?


We're fine with a stopgap measure for this. A long term view is not
necessarily in this case.
