thanks, but what is the answer to the question? what does apache do with db, and apr? they do not
store anything?

i asked this cause berkely-db 4.1 is a troublesome thing with svn (there were multiple threads at
dev@subversion.tigris.org about that), and for make svn useful it should be db40. and even the
woody compatibility packages contain db41.

or you suggest it is better to always compile svn and apache pkg with db40, and wait for db4.2?
