I had a problem with subversion after the upgrade to 1.9.6, and this
was due to an incompatibility with the apr library, which had not been
rebuilt for some time.

Seems that this is fall-out from the ino64 changes. Seems that while
symbol versioning allows old libraries to access struct stat as it was
before the change, this struct stat passed to a freshly built binary
(or library) by reference will cause obvious failures.

So, if you compile any port after the ino64 change, better make sure
that all referenced libraries (that operate on struct stat and might
pass such a struct to a fresh binary) have been rebuilt before.

As long as binary packages are built on a pre-ino64 machine, the
resulting packages ought to work on any -CURRENT system. But if you
build any port that references a library installed by such a package,
you risk mixing different versions of struct stat. This will continue
to be a problem as long as the -CURRENT package builders are pre-ino64.

If the package builders are upgraded to support ino64, all ports that
call stat() (or other functions with call signature affected by ino64)
should have PORTREVISION bumped, as should all ports depending on them.
