Here is a patch for the subversion.spec file and a small shell script
(build.svn.tarfile) to build the subversion.tar.gz file from the checked out
subversion repository.

New subversion-M3-r213 (S)RPMs can be found at
ftp://summersoft.fay.ar.us/pub/linux/RPMS/i386 and

Note that the new version requires an update from RedHat 7.1 for the
autoconf and libtool files.

These updated autoconf and libtool RPMS can also be found in the same
directories above and in

Crash Course on building RPMS
1. Put the enclosed .rpmmacros file into your home directory and edit to
taste. (This allows building RPM files without being root)

2. "mkdir -p rpms/{build,rpms/{i386,noarch},sources,srpms,tmp}"

3. (in $HOME/rpms/sources/subversion-M3-r213 directory)
   "build.svn.tarfile 213 ~/remote.projects/svn/trunk subversion-M3"
   builds a suitable tar.gz file from the checked out subversion sources.
   (Also needs spec file)

* OR *

3. "rpm -Uvh subversion-M3-r213.src.rpm" to unpack the source tar and spec
files into the $HOME/rpms/sources subdirectory

4. "cd $HOME/rpms/sources/subversion-M3-r213"
   "rpm -ba subversion.spec"

   builds from the current files.

5. rpm -Uvh $HOME/rpms/rpms/i386/subversion-M3-213.i386.rpm
   upgrades (removes any old version, installs new version)


Please let me know how things can be improved.
