When trying to install a more recent version of subversion, I get an installation error for 'apr'. When I look at the log file, it says:

:debug:main Using compiler 'Mac OS X gcc 4.0'
:debug:configure Environment: CPATH='/opt/local/include' CFLAGS='-O2 -arch i386' CPPFLAGS='-I/opt/local/include' CXXFLAGS='-O2 -arch i386' LIBRARY_PATH='/opt/local/lib' MACOSX_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET='10.5' ac_cv_path_SED='sed' CXX='/usr/bin/g++-4.0' CC_PRINT_OPTIONS_FILE='/opt/local/var/macports/build/_opt_local_var_macports_sources_rsync.macports.org_release_ports_devel_apr/work/.CC_PRINT_OPTIONS' F90FLAGS='-O2 -m32' LDFLAGS='-L/opt/local/lib -arch i386' FCFLAGS='-O2 -m32' lt_ECHO='/bin/echo' OBJC='/usr/bin/gcc-4.0' INSTALL='/usr/bin/install -c' FFLAGS='-O2 -m32' OBJCFLAGS='-O2 -arch i386' CC_PRINT_OPTIONS='YES' ac_cv_prog_AWK='awk' CC='/usr/bin/gcc-4.0'

and so on, but my gcc version is

i686-apple-darwin9-gcc-4.0.1 (GCC) 4.0.1 (Apple Inc. build 5493)

Is this the issue? Does anyone know how I can get around this?

I've already done 'port -d selfupdate' and the apr error comes up also during the 'port -f upgrade outdated' operation (in addition to just straightforward subversion installation). – crippledlambda Mar 29 '11 at 5:45

A simple

sudo port clean apr

seemed to do the trick. I didn't have to move anything out of /usr/local/ (which seems like a pretty aggressive demand!)
