Thanks Philip for the help.

I looked in the config.log file and found

  configure:5202: checking for serf_context_create in -lserf-1
  configure:5227: gcc -o conftest -g -O2 -pthread -I/home/mschuh/local/include -DLINUX=2 -D_REENTRANT -D_GNU_SOURCE -I/usr/include/apr-1 -I/usr/include/apr-1 - I/home/mschuh/local//include/serf-1 -L/home/mschuh/local/lib -L/home/mschuh/local//lib conftest.c -lserf-1 -laprutil-1 -lapr-1 -lz >&5
  /home/mschuh/local/lib/libserf-1.so: undefined reference to `apr_sockaddr_ip_getbuf'
  collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

I found a helpful tread on this http://subversion.1072662.n5.nabble.com/Serf-1-2-0-has-been-released-td178523.html that has

Sure enough, I am running CentOS and want to use the client side of Subversion to access repositories via https.

I tried installing APR 1.4.8 to see if it would work better with Serf.

  wget http://mirror.reverse.net/pub/apache//apr/apr-1.4.8.tar.bz2
  tar -xf apr-1.4.8.tar.bz2
  cd apr-1.4.8
  ./configure --prefix=/home/mschuh/local
  make install

This time, the configure script worked. I tried a build Subversion 1.8.0 again and ran into another error

Any suggestions on what to do next? Am I close or way far from succesfully compiling Subversion? Is there an older version of subversion that might with the older apr library? I want to run "svn co https://svn.xxx.com/repository" and such.
