I think the INSTALL file recommends a static client for the initial
tarball build simply because this is the way the tarball gets
tested. The tarball build is just a way to provide a client to
checkout a current version of the Subversion code. The intention is
that a dynamic client will work. I use a dynamic client most of the

It sounds like apr didn't get built when you built svrObj. Do you
object files under svrObj/apr (e.g. svrObj/apr/misc/unix/start.o)?

Did you build in the source directory at any stage? If you did then
this tends to disrupt the builddir != srcdir builds. If you did build
in the source dir, then it is best to run 'make clean' in the source
dir before attempting to build with builddir != srcdir.
