Re: Subversion 1.4.0 FINAL up for testing/signing

I tried building from subversion-1.4.0.tar.bz2, using
subversion-deps-1.4.0.tar.bz2 on an amd64 linux system, and
failed. The problem is that neon is built without -fPIC and later
linked into a shared library.

What I did:
$ tar jxf subversion-1.4.0.tar.bz2
$ tar jxf subversion-deps-1.4.0.tar.bz2
$ mkdir builddir
$ cd builddir
$ ../subversion-1.4.0/configure
$ make
/usr/lib64/gcc-lib/x86_64-suse-linux/3.3.5/../../../../x86_64-suse-linux/bin/ld: /home/david/src/builddir/neon/src/.libs/libneon.a(ne_request.o): relocation R_X86_64_32 against `a local symbol' can not be used when making a shared object; recompile with -fPIC

This is an excerpt from the configure output:

> configure: Configured to build neon 0.25.5:
> Install prefix: /usr/local
> Compiler: gcc
> XML Parser: expat
> SSL library: SSL support is not enabled
> zlib support: zlib support enabled, using -lz
> Build libraries: Shared=no, Static=yes
> neon configured properly

If I manually go in and update builddir/neon/src/Makefile to add -fPIC
to CFLAGS, it will compile cleanly, but I'm not sure that is the
correct solution. My libtool knowledge is pretty limited.

Some more information:
