Re: SVN on AIX

Eeek, hi, sorry it took me so long to reply. This list has so much
traffic I had to stop watching it, especially since I had to put any
Subversion plans on hold (now I'm going up against it again so I found
your note).

I doubt this will be of any use to you at this point but perhaps it
will be of some use to somebody.

Here's how I built the Apache server:

PREFIX=/usr/pkg/httpd-2.0.48
LIBPATH=/usr/pkg/db-4.2.52/lib CC=xlc_r ./configure \
        --prefix=$PREFIX \
        --with-berkeley-db=/usr/pkg/db-4.2.52 \
        --with-dbm=db4 \
        --enable-layout=Apache \
        --enable-so \
        --enable-dav \
        --enable-static-support \
        --enable-maintainer-mode \
        --with-mpm=worker \
        --enable-mods-shared=most \
        --with-expat=`pwd`/srclib/apr-util/xml/expat

And here's how I built Subversion (note the version...):

export PREFIX=/usr/pkg/subversion-0.37.0
export LIBPATH=/usr/pkg/db-4.2.52/lib
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/pkg/db-4.2.52/lib
export CC=xlc_r
CFLAGS="-qmaxmem=-1 -O -qlanglvl=extended" CC=xlc_r ./configure \
        --prefix=$PREFIX \
        --with-apxs=/usr/pkg/httpd-2.0.48/bin/apxs \
        --with-berkeley-db=/usr/pkg/db-4.2.52 \
        --enable-maintainer-mode

Both of these assume BDB is in this same source tree.

Let me know (perhaps cc: me directly) if this is unsuccessful... It
might jog my memory.

Drew.
