svn on Solaris

I'm working on trying to get a subversion client and server running on
Solaris. Has anyone been able to do this yet?

I'm able to download the most recent snapshot and get it compiled
statically just fine, using gcc 2.95.3. Works fine for checking out the
subversion source, even across a socks proxy.

However, compiling the server & apache & all the other things it needs
with gcc 2.95.3 produces some linking problems, like a missing
__floatdisf symbol. Seems to be a gcc problem.

So then I try and compile the whole shebang with the SunPro cc compiler.
  It works OK except a couple source files try to do struct assignments
rather than struct* assignments. SunPro cc doesn't like this so the
attached patch is required. Then I can get apache, subversion, et. al.
compiled.

However, when I try to run this client, I cannot even get it to show its
help:

     /usr/local/svn/bin/svn --help
--> Type `svn help' for help on Subversion usage.

Nor do any other commands work.

I /was/ able to use svnadmin to create a repository.

In the Apache server, the mod_dav_svn.so seems to load OK but doesn't
seem to process responses correctly. Using the svn client built
statically from the snapshot, I get a very odd response:

     svn mkdir -m test http://localhost:9080/repos/projname/
     subversion/libsvn_ra_dav/util.c:163: (apr_err=61013, src_err=0)
     svn: Unknown resolver error
     svn:
     file not found: transaction `4', path `/projname'

Should I just wait for the next snapshot which is supposed to come out
later today?

Is compiling with a compiler other than gcc just asking for trouble (and
should I be using gcc 3.x)?

Will subversion build OK against the released Apache 2.0.40 and its
associated apr and apr-util libs?

Sorry for all the questions,
