Successful bootstrap on Mac OS X

I am not sure if this is the correct mailing list, but I just wanted to
tell you, that I was able to compile subversion-M3 on Mac OS X 10.04.
I then checked out subversion from the repository and compiled it again.
It also ran all tests successfully and I was able to upgrade to version

I had the following problems when compiling:

--with-berkeley-db=/usr/local/BerkeleyDB.3.3 does not seem to work, I
had to create a link from the db sources to db

Mac OS X uses a case insensitiv file system, when it tries to link the
svn program it will the linker will throw an error that the file is
already existing as a directory. The SVN directory is in the way. I
tried to use the --program-suffix=SUFFIX option, but the option seems
to be ignored.
Workaround: move the SVN directory out of the way.

Wouldn't it be better in general to use .svn or .SVN instead of SVN?

One final question come into my mind about the features of subversion:
is it possible to marks a directory as binary? This would imply that the
directory and all its contents would get managed as a single entity.

Ok, finally thanks for making this available. It looks like this is
going to be a honorable successor of CVS ;-)

I am happy to help if there is any work for a spoiled Java/Objective-
C/Ruby programmer ;-)
