It is neither correct nor appropriate to require the addition of a
subdirectory (i.e. /usr/local/lib/apache2) to be in the LD_LIBRARY_PATH
or added to ldconfig.  This is essentially what I have to do now.  I
have added /usr/local/lib/apache2 to /etc/

As it stands, when subversion and apache2 are installed neither of them
work "out of the box".  You are forced to do something like add the path
as mentioned above.  One of the following items should be fixed:

subversion and apache2 should have all libraries in
/usr/local/lib/apache2 linked in with rpaths


shared libraries in /usr/local/lib/apache2 should be moved back to
