subversion + devel/apr + mod_dav_svn?

Is it possible/reasonable to want subversion to cooperate with WITH_APR_FROM_PORTS?

Currently it either builds with apr from ports if not using Apache, but apr from the
source tree (apr-svn? or Apache's own) which gives messages about "you may want to
uninstall the devel/apr port".

I really want to use the shared port version for development reasons (apps using apr
here) but it seems not to be supported in the Makefile.

Is there a good reason?

I would like to create/submit a patch which lets subversion use devel/apr if Apache
