Help needed with Subversion build on Win32

I've been struggling to build Subversion from source on Win32, and I'm
pretty close. However, there's one problem I can't seem to get around.

The INSTALL file says the following in talking about Berkeley DB as a build

  If you are on the Windows platform and want to build Subversion,
  a precompiled version of the Berkeley DB library is available for
  download at the Subversion web site:


        [and later on]

  If you want to build the (local) server components, you'll also
  need a copy of Berkeley DB, version 4.0.14 or newer. Details are
  in Section I.6. For your convenience, there is also a binary
  distribution on the Subversion downloads page


  The file there is named


  Unpack the distribution into the root directory of the Subversion
  source tree as <SVN>\db4-win32. [...]

Well, that particular piece of information seems to be obsolete, because no
files are available at that URL.

        I can build the BDB source, but I haven't been able to figure out
how to place it in that location and have the gen_make.py script find it.

        Does anyone know how I can get the pre-built version? Is that URL
missing a parameter on it? Does anyone know the structure of the unpacked
version of that file?

        Finally, is there any way to look through all of the available
downloads at tigris.org, instead of going through the tightly controlled
URLs put on the Web site?

        Thank you.
