Why?  If we have shared libraries available can't it just use those?  I mean
at present I'm not sure apache can, so this whole area needs some looking at

If you're building subversion on the same system as apache can you tell
either apache or subversion where to look for the source?  ISTR this is
something we've talked about for apache before now. AFAIK not done anything
about it yet.
