Thanks, latest is up at
for those who want to review.

Do note that I need answers to my apache questions since the entire APR
thing is an ABI maintenance issue which needs to be carefully worked out,
lest we desire breakage in some packages. ;)

There is, however, one small issue with apr (both 0.9 and 1.x) and IPv6
binding.  Subversion 1.2.0 has svnserve which now has code that, by default,
only binds to IPv6, apparently due to KAME's net.inet6.ip6.v6only set to 1
by default.  For all I know this is not needed to go wrong and is merely an
issue in APR.  However I was told that having a line like:

::1                     localhost

in /etc/hosts is the likely culprit.  This seems a bit farfetched to me.

Once again, feedback more than welcome. :)
