It's interesting that Jeff reports a problem with svnversion but
nothing else. If he is getting old libraries, as seems likely given
the backtrace he psoted, why doesn't it affect all the other binaries?

Jeff, what platform are you using? Is the svnversion test the only
one that fails? Do you have an ldd command? If so what is the output
from

$ ldd subversion/svnversion/.libs/lt-svnversion | grep libsvn
$ ldd subversion/clients/cmdline/.libs/lt-svn | grep libsvn
