RE: Building under Solaris with Apache, BDB4.2

Apache builds without finding the db, so I just tried to build subversion. I
specified the same location for the BerkeleyDB.4.2 and it also didn't find
it, and built only the client.

My point: neither Apache nor Subversion seems to be able to see my
BerkeleyDB installation. Maybe this is a clue? I've racked my brain, and
quadrouple-checked the spelling on everything I can think of. It all looks

Holy cow, I wish it were possible to wrap everything up into one
installation script: Berkeley DB, Apache 2.0.49, the works. This is crazy.

I don't mean to be a pain, but I've sent three messages on this topic, and I
haven't seen any replies. I haven't even seen my own messages come back to
me. I know that in the past email messages have taken more than a day and a
half to get through this awful government email system I have to use, but
I've got people waiting to use subversion once I get it installed. If
someone sees any replies to my desperate cries for help, could you forward
them to svn@wadhome.org please? I can check that through the web, and bypass
this blasted government mail server completely. (If you forward them to me,
please reply to the list, so nobody else wastes time doing the same thing.)

Tons of thanks in advance!
