I've uploaded new versions of libapr1, libaprutil1, and subversion.
libapr1 is built with threads and the subversion tests appear to pass,
or at least fail in the same way as with a libapr1 without threads.
I rebuilt libaprutil1 with the --with-crypto flag, although I'm pretty
sure it was picking up the crypto library without the flag.
