              I was having issues getting mod_dav_svn installed with the subversion 1.3.0r2 port.

First, I'd install apache20 WITH_BERKELEY_DB=db4,
Then I'd install subversion WITH_MOD_DAV_SVN=yes..

Everything would go smooth, but mod_dav_svn would not install. No errors. It  just didn't installed.

Then I put MOD_DAV_SVN=yes in /etc/make.conf. Finally, subversion reported that mod_dav_svn would be enabled.
Now, upon the `make WITH_MOD_DAV_SVN=yes install` under the subversion port, it complained that apache20 would need to be deinstalled. So I did that, and then re-ran make install under subversion.. which installed subversion along with apache. great. Still, no mod_dav_svn...

So finally, I did a make deinstall and make distclean on both. I then went into subversion's port folder and did a make WITH_MOD_DAV_SVN=yes and make install, which also configured and installed apache. This method worked great with no errors and mod_dav_svn was installed.

Just FYI
