Hmmm, The following list of ports;

mod_webapp, flood, subversion, c_c++_reference-2.0.2_3, chora-2.0,
cvs2svn-1.2.0, esvn-0.6.8, kdesdk-3.4.0, kdevelop-3.2.0,
p5-Log-Accounting-SVK-0.03,, p5-SVN-Mirror-0.56, p5-SVN-Simple-0.27,
p5-SVN-Web-0.38, p5-VCP-Dest-svk-0.28_1, psvn-10727, rapidsvn-0.7.0,
subversion-1.1.3, subversion-perl-1.1.3, subversion-python-1.1.3,
svk-0.30, instant-workstation-1.0_8, kdewebdev-3.4.0,2,
p5-Kwiki-Archive-SVK-0.11, trac-0.8, kde-3.4.0

is the full list apr-1 in some form as a B-dep or an R-dep.
instant-workstation and kde are a bit worrying it has to be said.
Though I think the workaround is still acceptable.

That's what release notes are for :)
