I don't want to make apache2 and apr conflicts.
Splitting apr and apache2 has several advantages, like a real apr
abstraction layer without rebuilding apache2. OTOH, it can disturb users
since there's a relationship between apr and apache2 options.
Ideally apache2 would be split into 3 parts, to support apr,apache2
tools, apache2 server/modules. Due to ports tree infrastructure, it's
hard to offer this solution, but with a little work it should be okay.

If I split apache2 ports, all knobs (apr-related ones of course) will be

Nice comprise. I committed this yesterday (as you surely noticed).
I try tobuid subversion modules, and it's working. Since apache2 port
prevents installation of 2 apr, we should never have problem ;)
