FreeBSD port of Subversion, take 1

i've got a FreeBSD oprt of subversion put together and i'd like to get
any comments you guys might have before i submit it o FreeBSD.

you can get the port itself from


and you'll also need a port of diffutils that i put together, which
can be found at


the port has a few problems that i'll eventually want to work out, but
they require some additions to the build system, so they will have to

first, this uses your in-tree version of neon, where it would be nice to
use the FreeBSD port of neon, but i couldn't find a way to use a
version of neon outside the tree. unfortunately, i think the two
versions of neon might spam each other at the moment, so be careful if
you have the neon port installed.

second, this will install subversion's version of apr, while the
apache2 port is also installing it's own version (in a different dir
though, so they won't spam each other). it would be nice to split out
apr into its own port hand have apache2 and subversion both use it,
but that'll have to wait until i can talk to the apache2 maintainer.

those are the only gottcha's i'm aware of, other than that it works
for me (tm).

note that if you guys could roll a release soon, it would probably be
better to submit this to FreeBSD with a newer version, since IIRC some
pretty annoying bugs have been fixed since M3, but if it's going to
take a while before you guys make another snapshot, i'll submit this,
because at least it's enough for people to download subversion from
the repository themselves.
