Woah. 202 is an *old* tarball. Please fetch a more current version from the
downloads page on http://subversion.tigris.org/. That also includes the
latest copy of APR, which is your problem below.

What's going on here is that you don't have an up to date copy of APR. I
thought we had instructions in a doc somewhere, but it appears they come up
only when APR can't be found.

See the end of ac-helpers/apr.m4 for instructions on how to check out a
working copy of APR into your directory (rather than the static copy that is
included into Subversion tarballs).

Using the latest release from subversion.tigris.org will update the copy of
APR, but using CVS will allow you to stay on the bleeding edge :-)
