Did I miss the url's for this cygwin tar.bz2?
People are already voting without any package to review?

Max, can you please post your apr and apr-util urls, so that I can 
finish the svn src installation and check it. Or does apr*-0.9.4 compile 
out-of-the box?
   ./configure --enable-layout=RedHat --libexecdir=/usr/sbin/
I assume.

Dave's datadir defines --datadir=/usr/share, which should be /var/www. 
layout=RedHat defines libexecdir /usr/lib/apr which should be /usr/sbin/

Otherwise I agree with Nicholas, to built svn with the included 
(duplicate) static apr and apr-utils libs, regardless of code bloat.
Dave Slusher already did that.
I don't have a vote, but I would vote no on apr, apr-utils, until
stipe's status is verified.

And as Max already said, Dave should fix his svn build to include the 
server and clean up the build mess: autom4te.cache, fix the doc paths 
and use the external neon built if found. Probably just the
--with-neon=/usr line is enough, to find /usr/bin/neon-config

Then his patch (1.3MB) would also be much smaller (4KB).
