Ouch. I thought the 8 hours it took me last Sunday trying to build
svn for OS X was bad...

If you're not going to use Fink you should consider using a /usr/local
management system such as Encap (www.encap.org), it really helps you
keep track of multiple versions of software while you're trying to
build. Although there is a bug in apr-config/apu-config which causes
it to return the wrong library path when installed with Encap (which I
really need to report/fix), this is the only Encap-related issue I've
found in a long while.

I assume you mean 2.52. Fink installs 2.53:

ii autoconf25 2.53-1 System for generating configure scripts

Also, aclocal is part of automake, not autoconf. I've got automake
1.4p4 installed, not through fink.

I've compiled Subversion on my TiBook, which doesn't have any TeX
distribution installed, and aside from not ending up with any texinfo
files, it works just fine. So I wouldn't worry about this until
you've got the other problems sorted out.
