Issue #4588, part 3: Build issues on CentOS

From: Stefan Fuhrmann <stefan.fuhrmann_at_wandisco.com>

The latest relevant section taken from that issue:

Secondly, I would like to install Subversion 1.9 to try it out, but I'm running
> CentOS 6.4 and I just can't get Subversion 1.9 to build. As I mentioned below, I
> have to download the latest Serf version, which doesn't come with CentOS 6.4.
> And building serf doesn't work. I try just "scons", but then "scons check" fails
> with things like "test/test_buckets.c:1559: warning: integer overflow in
> expression". Plus scons wants "APR", "APU", "OPENSSL", and "PREFIX" parameters
> (according to the README.TXT). I'm sure my APR path isn't correct---on this
> server I used the Apache from yum and don't know where my APR libraries are. I

Is there anything we can reasonably do about it?
