When I reported the problem with Subversion, I was running MacPorts  
1.3.2. The problem was that "sudo port install subversion +no_bdb"  
would still download db44, because db44 is a dependency of apr-util,  
and apr-util is a dependency of subversion. It would install db44,  
and apr-util +no_bdb, and subversion +no_bdb. When all was done, I  
could "sudo port uninstall db44". But I never wanted db44 to be  
downloaded and installed in the first place.
