Re: [PATCH] Build both serf and dav

From: David Glasser <glasser_at_mit.edu>

I committed this patch (plus some changes to INSTALL and
libsvn_ra_serf/README) in r25384. People should start building their
trunk builds with both dav and serf! Somebody should add Makefile
targets that set http-library before running the test suite!

I documented this in a ### comment at the top of the RA loader where
it discusses the dav/serf issue in general.

I'm comfortable with this.

Somebody (I don't have time right now) really should do this before 1.5.

I'm comfortable with this.

I'm comfortable with this.

See above.
