Fwd: Re: [opensuse] Compiling subversion from sources

I have tried recently to compile svn 1.5.5 on openSuSE 11.1, but I cannot due
to a missing library, libneon.la. I have posted this issue on openSuSE forum
and they say that this library is not needed in order to compile svn (see
below their message). Perhaps this issue could be fixed in the next releases
of svn.

The static version isn't needed, it's just an error/bug in the
subversion source configuration. Had you unpacked a recent openSUSE
.src.rpm and looked into subversion.spec you'd have seen that one of
the patches we apply is subversion-1.5.x-no-neon-la.patch that

- NEON_LIBS=`$neon_config --la-file`
+ NEON_LIBS=`$neon_config --libs`

So edit build/ac-macros/neon.m4 and make the same change and you
should be able to compile subversion 1.5.5.

As a general rule: before complaining that openSUSE lacks something
for compiling a package that we also provide, please look into the
spec file of our .src.rpm. Chances are rather good that our source
RPMs contain patches that fix the problem.
