I think the brokenness with apr that you are referring to is that if you 
update only apache you get a message:
Undefined PLT symbol "apr_socket_accept_filter"
and it is difficult to "upgrade" apr, because the version number of the
package isn't actually any different, even though it got built differently.
Then again, that is what I am seeing when upgrading from netbsd-4 to netbsd-5
so maybe the netbsd-5 -> netbsd-current problem is something different.
