Thanks... Sorry for not following the mailing lists - it is just too
much to read in busy periods.

Looks good. I'll try and see how far I get.
There seems to be some kind of freeze for pkgsrc at the moment
(did this ever get announced?); after that, you might be able
to do the integration work yourself.
Until then, I'd only like to import the "ap2-subversion" module;
this is a leaf node, thus shouldn't break other stuff, and it is
a missing link. (The standalone svn server worked well for me
btw, but it lacks authentication.)

I'd like to comment on pkg naming: We should try to use
the suffix "-devel" consistently. It might refer to a "bleeding edge"
version of something, or (orthogonally) to the pieces needed for
extending/embedding the pkg, ie headers and (static) libs.
In the case of "apr", I'd say the apr shipped with an apache
is literally the a.p.r. and doesn't need the "devel".
We have also named Python extension pkgs "px-xyz".
