the new apache packages (2.0.52-r3) do not include apr and apr-util anymore. instead, these are listed as dependencies. now, as subversion blocks these, it cannot be (re-)emerged.
also mod_dav_svn compiled for old apache does not work anymore, leads to segfaults of apache when loaded.
Steps to Reproduce:
i also just found out that subversion compiles and runs nice when the block/mask for apr is removed.
This is why the Apache ebuild is hard masked at this time.
There will be a new Subersion ebuild coming soon that will depend on APR and APR-Util.
The merge is still taking place, everything is still hard masked. A as #2 stated there will be a new version of subversion - in fact it's already created, it just hasn't been merged yet. It should be merged sometime today if all goes well.
Thanks for the report!
New subversion is in CVS. Please unmask and test.
When downgrading from apache-2.0.53 subversion, you MUST unmerge apr before you emerge apache-2.0.52 or below.
Failure to unmerge apr with apache-2.0.52 or less causes apache to seg fault.
Perhaps it would be wise to add a blocker on apache-2.0.52 or less if apr is installed?
