 Hi Timofeev,
 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
