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.

Second Law of Business Meetings:
        If there are two possible ways to spell a person's name, you
        will pick the wrong one.

        If there is only one way to spell a name,
        you will spell it wrong, anyway.
