Problem building subversion RPM

<warning type="newbie alert">

  This is my first day playing with subversion and I'm probably doing
  something daft, but I have searched for an answer on Google...


I'm running a minimal RedHat 8.0 server and I have installed
Subversion from RPMS and I have created a repository and things
*seem* to be working OK so far...

I have checked out the latest code:

  $ /usr/bin/svn checkout http://svn.collab.net/repos/svn/trunk svn
I have followed the instructions for building an RPM from the code
and things go OK till the very end where I get this message:

  libtool: install: warning: remember to run `libtool --finish /usr/lib'
  subversion/svnversion/svnversion . /repos/svn/trunk > /home/chris/rpms/tmp/subversion-0.17.1-4884/usr/include/subversion-1/svn-revision.txt
  svn: No such file or directory
  svn: svn_io_file_open: can't open `.svn/entries'
  make[1]: *** [revision-install] Error 1
  make[1]: Leaving directory
  error: Bad exit status from /home/chris/rpms/tmp/rpm-tmp.11400

  RPM build errors:
      Bad exit status from /home/chris/rpms/tmp/rpm-tmp.11400
  make: *** [build_rpm_files] Error 1

I have tried chmod 664'ing `.svn/entries' and running make again but
it makes no difference.

Anyone have any ideas?
