Actually, since I did get subversion to build (by moving
/usr/ccs/bin/ld) I wasn't asking for help so much as wondering why the
behavior was different between 1.3.x and 1.4.0. Anyway, here are my
build commands:

export PATH=/usr/local/bin:$PATH
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/ssl/lib:/usr/local/lib/gcc/sparc-sun-solaris2.6/3.4.1/include:/usr/local/lib
export LIBS="-L/usr/local/lib/gcc/sparc-sun-solaris2.6/3.4.1 -lgcc"
export CONFIG_SHELL=/usr/local/bin/bash
export LD=/usr/local/bin/ld
  --without-apache --without-berkeley-db --with-python=/usr/local/bin/python \
  --with-perl5=/usr/local/bin/perl --with-apr=/usr/local/apr/bin/apr-config \

Looks like that is the problem -- Hmm, maybe my 1.3.x builds used the
Solaris linker too, but the build succeeded with the Solaris linker, but
for some reason the 1.4.0 build requires the GNU linker.

Next time I'll try one or more of the above.

I checked that, but that is not the problem.

Thanks for your help/suggestions.
