The above makes me think you are trying to work on WINDOWS?????

But the above looks like Linux, so which is it?

Which distribution did you choose? (You just said "distribution" but
didn't say which one).

Anyway, it may not matter, the only ones supported currently in 1.4.6 are
RedHat 8, 9, RHEL3, RHEL4, and RHEL5.

Fedora 8 is not listed there.

I would suggest that you install those packages and try again.

However, if it still doesn't work then you will need to find out which
versions of those packages do work with Fedora 8 and/or change the
subversion.spec file to work on your Fedora 8 distribution.

Alternately, Fedora (Core) 2 - 9 all have versions of subversion already
for installing, just use "yum install subversion".

But I don't know which subversion release they are using, it might be
earlier than Subversion 1.4.6.
