A little more information on this. I have probably rebuilt svn about 20 times tonight from scratch, with
latest source from repository, and after upgrading libtools, autoconf, apr etc. It failed the make check
tests every time. I finally tried a minimal configure with just the packages needed to get it to build,

e.g.

./configure --with-apr=/tools/apr --with-apr-util=/tools/httpd-2.2.19-src/srclib/apr-util/ --with-sqlite=/tools/sqlite-3.7.10

versus:

./configure --prefix=/tools/subersion-1.7.4 --with-apr=/tools/apr --with-apr-util=/tools/httpd-2.2.19-src/srclib/apr-util/ --with-apxs=/tools/httpd-2.2.19/bin/apxs --with-neon=/tools/neon-0.29.0 --with-sqlite=/tools/sqlite-3.7.10 --with-sasl=/tools/cyrus-sasl-2.1.25

and it seems to be passing its tests fine now (it's not very useful built this way, but that narrows down the problem). I'll add back in the extra
packages tomorrow till I find which one is breaking things. Thanks for your patience and again if you have any ideas what is causing the problem,
I'd be very happy to know. What started as a simple attempt to check in some code has cost a lot of time http://xkcd.com/349/
