      Description

      In the case of building subversion and httpd from source, and 
      the current release of httpd is 2.2.x, the apr-1 library should be preferred in
      the subversion build.
      
      The idea is to make the configure script smarter if both apr-0 and apr-1 are
      detected in the PATH. apr-1 should always be first choice. That would save some
      headache of package maintainers. When they migrate from apache 2.0.x to 2.2.x,
      the incompatible apr-0 instead of apr-1 might lead to a segfault/bus error later
      at runtime, which is not easy to track down.
