So tried again, this time renaming the APR source directories to their default values instead of relying on passing the --with-apr option to buildconf:

make clean
cd ..
mv apr-1.2.8 apr
mv apr-util-1.2.8 apr-util
sudo rm -f /usr/local/lib/libapr*
cd apr
./buildconf
./configure
make && make check
sudo make install
cd ../apr-util
./buildconf
./configure --with-apr=/usr/local/apr/bin/apr-1-config
make
sudo make install
make check
cd ../subversion-1.4.3
./configure --with-apr=/usr/local/apr/bin/apr-1-config       \
            --with-apr-util=/usr/local/apr/bin/apu-1-config  \
            --disable-mod-activation                         \
            --with-ssl
make && make check
sudo make install

This time it worked, so the moral of the story is: don’t rely on the --with-apr switch to buildconf on Mac OS X, even though the same switch worked fine on Red Hat Enterprise Linux (see below).
