Re: Problem building subversion RPM

Sorry, I've not submitted any patches for the RPM since the
svn-revision.txt went in because I can't get "make check" to pass on
svnserve, it's been hanging on the externals test.

Basically the issue is that the Makefile is assuming that the build
directory is a working copy directory which is not true for the RPM.
So when it tries to run svnversion it bombs.

However, I'll go ahead and check in my patches that I've got as at least
that will let more eyes look at the problem....as it is the RPM won't
build at all.

With my patches I've got in my working copy it will at least build (though
not yet pass "make check"...and you can turn that option off).

I'll try to post the changes here in a bit.
