 Are these SuSE packages wrong not to include ...-config?

 I have worked around this for now by getting the source code from
 CVS instead.

Just to point out the obvious - the lack of ...-config is not fatal as
such, since the paths could be located by hand - but!

The lack of ...-config usually is a hint that there's a lack of
headers files as well. The header files are necessary to build
Subversion and you can't get around that.

So, instead of messing with the ...-config, you need to find the SuSE
packages that provide the header files (which are quite numerous) for
the packages you need.
