Right now, maybe that's the simplest solution.

But in the long run, if a package in /usr/ports has dependencies on
other stand-alone libraries, it should have explicit dependencies.
For example, Subversion also depends on db3 and neon -- and both of
these packages have their own port.  Hopefully, someday APR will too.
Until that day comes, maybe you're right -- maybe it's best just to
assume APR will be included in the Subversion tarball.
