Creating Packages of subversion

Over the weekend I created an updated Debian package of subversion and
came across some problems with getting the build system to install
into the temporary area that is used to create the package.

It would help anyone that creating a package if it was possible to
invoke make install as

        make install DESTDIR=debian/tmp

So we can direct the install into this package build area instead of
the path set by --prefix option to ./configure.

The direct use of apxs2 to install mod_dav_svn.so into the apache
modules directory is also a problem. If it could be made to use
$(DESTDIR)$(path from apxs2 -q LIBEXECDIR) instead of apxs2 -i -a it
would be of great help to anyone creating ether debs or rpms [1].

I'm currenly looking into creating a patch to gen-make.py that will
have the same effect as the attached patch to build-outs.mk - would the
subversion developers accept such an patch to the build system ?

[1] There's a patch in the rpm package directory that changes the
    apache module install line of build-outs.mk
