Re: configure --prefix requires DESTDIR

Your toplevel makefile states
which causes the install to fail with
  cp .libs/mod_dav_svn.soT /usr/lib/httpd/modules/mod_dav_svn.so
  cp: cannot create regular file `/usr/lib/httpd/modules/mod_dav_svn.so': Permission denied

Obviously, by adding DESTDIR to the make install command,
this is avoided, and then everything works fine.
