I downloaded the tarfile for one of the post milestone 3 releases, compiled
and installed that, then used it to down load the latest version. I then
compiled the latest stuff as per the instructions and installed it in a
different directory. I changed my path and LD_LIBRARY_PATH to reflect the
new install. (I also removed the old svn libraries during compile to
avoid any possible linkage problems.)

Apr and Apachie are the latest from cvs for those projects. Neon is version
0.17.1. Db stuff is 3.3.11.

I ran configure as:

./configure --with-apxs=/scratch/tparent/apache2.0/bin/apxs
--enable-maintainer-mode --prefix=/scratch/tparent/gnu2
--with-berkeley-db=/scratch/tparent/BerkleyDb/3.3.11

I linked all the SVN directories to .svn because that was changed from my
original copy and tried to do an svn -up in the trunk dir and it has the
same problems, so I obviously have something wrong in the compile.

SRM is, but DVS seems to be a command line interface.

Understood. I was just mentioning is as "other work being done".
