Re: BDB 4.0.14 static?

Ha! Why is it you *always* find the answer *after* posting to the list?

The answer is: ./configure --without-berkeley-db
but it goes ahead and compiles svnadmin statically fine! :-)

Hopefully in a few minutes I'll have a new RPM that saves the old static
svnadmin when the RPM is erased or upgraded so you can still dump/load
your old repositories *AFTER* upgrading to a new version of the RPM.
