My experiences with building SVN on Solaris is that you can't build
static libraries. At least the Solaris version I have (Solaris 9)
doesn't ship with static versions of some libraries. At the risk of
over-generalising, this is a Sun-thing, trying to discourage static
builds and encourage dynamic linking to core libraries.

In order to build the SVN binaries, but not require users to update
their LD_LIBRARY_PATH to find gcc libs in our installation, I ensure I
set the LD_FLAGS when building...

export LDFLAGS="-L$GCC_HOME/lib -R$GCC_HOME/lib"
