It seems I spoke too soon.  It turns out that the updated SVN server 1.6.9 works for those
few of our repositories that are in FSFS format.  Unfortunately, our legacy repositories are
almost all in BDB format and I'm loathe to touch them if I can avoid it.

Building SVN from source is not really a useful option, but we can do it (with a struggle)
if we absolutely have to.   Frankly, I'd rather convert all the repositories (and there are
100 all up, although some are in FSFS format already) than build the server code.  Has anybody
built a version that handles BDB in a DAV module?

We can swap back to the other version fairly easily if we have to, just by stopping Apache2.2
and starting Apache2 (or vice-versa).
