Ironically all I remember is you posting messages like this one:


Where it seems that you basically just want to shit all over everyone.

Looking back at the other messages, the problem as I see it is that you
are not making any attempt to acknowledge the questions that have been
asked. Are you attempting to follow the build instruction as documented
in INSTALL? If so, then indicate the point in the instructions where it
failed and what you saw. Also, indicate if there is anywhere you have
gone off script. The errors you have been getting, especially the most
recent ones, just would not happen if you were using the build system.

FWIW, I am not even a C programmer and I was able to build Subversion on
Windows by following the instructions. There were a lot of pieces to get
installed, but once that was done, I just used a batch file that automates
the INSTALL steps. I can usually completely rebuild when a new tag is
made in just 10-15 minutes. Of course it then takes a few hours to run
the test suite, but I have found the build process very easy. Perhaps I
am at an advantage in that I do NOT know anything. Therefore I stuck to
script like a robot.
