Re: Cannot Build svn 0.21.0 server on Solaris 2.8

Okay, finally decided to give in and hack the OS-supplied signal.h. I put the
sigset_t def in-line where the extern ref was. make then choked on swig because
of - you guessed it - multiple defs for sigset_t. I then removed swig from the
configure line but it still chokes on swig? (Even did make extraclean.) Anyway,
the svn binary was compiled; I have no swig (so no viewsvn), but at least I've
got something...

Thanks for your help - been a decade or so since I've done any real C/C++... I
would like to know the root cause, though, others have not had this problem on
Solaris 2.8 using same apache2/subversion versions. My Solaris box recently had
patches applied, but maybe it still isn't completey patched up? Or is this
possibly an issue with the subversion build process?
