It seemed to have been installed to /usr/local, but removing that did not
help. I ended up blowing away the whole installation of RH9 and starting
from scratch.

After the new installation of RH9 was completed (making sure that mod_perl,
mod_python and mod_php were not installed), I followed my complete idiot's
guide and have now successfully got Config-IniFiles-2.38 installed.

Downloaded the Subversion RPMs once again and did a test update.

# rpm -Uvh --test *.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
        perl(CGI) >= 2.89 is needed by subversion-tools-0.25.0-6434
        perl(CGI::Carp) >= 1.24 is needed by subversion-tools-0.25.0-6434

I had a look at CPAN and found that there are countless modules for CGI and
Carp, but none that have CGI and Carp in their name. Which modules do I
need now and how are you supposed to discern the required module filenames
from those error messages?

This is my idiot's guide so far. It works right up to the 'update
Subversion' step.

The Complete Idiot's Guide to Installing a Subversion 0.25.0 Server on Red
Hat 9

Install Red Hat 9 in Server configuration. Make sure that mod_perl, mod_php
and mod_python are not installed as part of the Web Server category of
packages. This is because the upgrade to httpd-2.0.47 fails due to
dependency errors with these packages.

Download apt-get

Install it (remember that you must be logged in as root, ie. su root, to
install RPMs)
# rpm -ivh apt-0.5.5cnc6-fr1.i386.rpm

First you must update the packages that apt-get knows about
# apt-get update

Now use apt-get to download and install cpanflute2
# apt-get install perl-RPM-Specfile

Download the Config-IniFiles-2.38 module from CPAN

Use cpanflute2 to compile the RPMs for Config-IniFile-2.38
# cpanflute2 --buildall Config-IniFiles-2.38.tar.gz

This created three RPMs, but you only need one of them. Now we update
# rpm -Uvh perl-Config-IniFiles-2.38-8.i386.rpm

Download the RPMs for Subversion into a directory

Change to the directory you downloaded the packages to and update Subversion
# rpm -Uvh *.rpm
