It should be working now. It was broken by the genmake thing
for a bit, but those problems were resolved. I just get the feeling
that I am the only one using this feature since it seems to come
up broken a lot (pout).

If anyone wants to try it, here is how:

(Using ~/project/build is the just the way I do it)

mkdir ~/project/install/subversion
cd ~/project/build
mkdir subversion ; cd subversion
~/project/subversion/configure --enable-debug \
  --prefix=`cd ~/project/install/subversion;pwd`

make
make install

This really is a cool feature since it lets you build
static and dynamic versions from the same source in
two different directories, for example.

cheers
Mo
