Hmm. You should have a libaprutil.la file if apr-util was built
properly. What is in your apr-util directory? Is there anything
called libaprutil or something like that?

You could try building apr and apr-util first and then go build
SVN. Then, use --with-apr and --with-apr-util to point SVN at
your APR and APR-util locations. In fact, if you are planning on
building a SVN server with httpd-2.0 and mod_dav_svn, you get the
APR and APR-util libraries for 'free' - so you can configure
subversion with:

./configure \
--with-apr=/path/to/my/httpd-2.0/install \
--with-apr-util=/path/to/my/httpd-2.0/install

That might help in case SVN's build system is doing something screwy.

I'd use gcc-3.1 as that is the latest official version.
I don't know what version RH officially supports.

You may need "-Wl,-rpath,<path_to_db_libs>" set in your LDFLAGS.

If you are going to trying to build mod_dav_svn so you can have your
own SVN server, you must build and install httpd-2.0 first so that
SVN can build mod_dav_svn correctly.

autogen.sh will ensure you have the right version. But, if
you use a snapshot from the website, you don't need to run
that. If you are using a development checkout (i.e. checked
out using SVN), you must run autogen.sh.
