devel/apr1 can use any Berkeley db starting from db42.
The the line 'USE_BDB=42+' is technical correct, but I see your intention.
Indeed Berkeley db is optional for apr.
In case you don't run subversion with a Berkeley DB backend or use the htdbm
utility explicit to create bdb databases it is save to switch this option to
The correct way to use a higher DB version is
- using WITH_BDB_VER=XX in etc/make.conf
- install a higher version before building apr then this version is selected
- bumping the default version in Mk/bsd.database.mk
