A couple followup emails to your query pointed out 'ldconfig' and that it
solved your problem here.

I'm going to try to say this nicely. That specific point was in the INSTALL
document, if you had read it (at all, or in more detail). Specifically:

      Additionally, with shared library builds, the destination
      library directory must be identified in your operating system's
      library search path. That is in either /etc/ld.so.conf or
      $LD_LIBRARY_PATH for linux systems and in /etc/rc.conf for
      FreeBSD, followed by a run of the 'ldconfig' program. Check your
      system documentation for details. By identifying the destination

The reason why I bring this up is not simple "RTFM", but that you have asked
about a half-dozen questions on this list over the past couple days. You
have consumed a number of people's time to respond to your problems, when
*you* could have handled this yourself.

Personally, I find this unfair on your part. Many people on this list work
to make Subversion better. They put in a lot of time already. But you're not
putting in your *own* time, and instead asking others to donate even more of
their scarce time to solve problems which you could have done yourself.

*Please* ... in the future, please take a moment to review existing
documentation, bug reports, or even the mail list archives. Hundreds of
people have installed Subversion and got it work fine. Your answer will most
likely be there, and I'd encourage you to spend a bit of your own time to
find it first.
