You are treading on another maintainer's domain, as the apr runtime is 
part of Apache2.  Regardless of whether you agree or disagree with 
Stipe's handling of apache, he's still the maintainer.  The last time I 
heard, Stipe was still fixing serious bugs with the Apache2 server, 
which I guess is why it isn't working yet on Cygwin.  Since you can just 
as easily build subversion with a static apr, I don't see any need for 
this additional packaging.
