I uninstalled apache, but kept subversion-base installed.

And a "make" (after a "make clean") didn't have the error again.

So then I uninstalled subversion-base, make clean, and make gave that
error: /usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lsvn_subr-1.

So then I did a "make clean" added those two lines:

CONFIGURE_ARGS+=        --without-apache
CONFIGURE_ARGS+=        --without-apxs

and "make" worked fine (with subversion-base uninstalled at same time as
