More build problems with Subversion 1.2

I was a competent software engineer earlier today... but now I'm
doubting myself. It seems that Subversion 1.2.x fails to build "out
of the box" on my SuSE 9.1 Linux installation in addition to the OS X
issues mentioned earlier.

I checked out a fresh copy of the 1.2.x branch...

> ./autogen.sh

> ./configure

[claims it won't build with BDB support - that's fine.]

> make

...
cd subversion/libsvn_subr && /bin/sh /home/scottpalmer/dev/

bin/ld: cannot find -lgdbm

make: *** [subversion/libsvn_subr/libsvn_subr-1.la] Error 1

So I have to wonder how things were "worse" before this autoconf
thing. :-)

The procedure appears to be quite unreliable. I've had it "just
work" when compiling 1.1.x, but now the fact that it goes through all
that hoopla only to fail is a tad depressing.
