Re: compiling subversion

From: Gergely Imre <gimre_at_virtualro.co.uk>

now, i don't know if the followings were a wise thing to do, nevertheless i
tried them :)

i downloaded the specs, patches and sources from the url:


from the dir wbel-3, because i thought this is the closest to
Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES release 2.1 (Panama),
the distro i have to install subversion on.

i put them in /usr/src/redhat/blabla, and tried to build the (s)rpms.
on the first try of building the apr packages, i got the following error:

+ ./configure i386-redhat-linux --prefix=/usr --exec-prefix=/usr
--bindir=/usr/bin --sbindir=/usr/sbin --sysconfdir=/etc --datadir=/usr/share
--includedir=/usr/include --libdir=/usr/lib --libexecdir=/usr/libexec
--localstatedir=/var --sharedstatedir=/usr/com --mandir=/usr/share/man
--infodir=/usr/share/info -C --includedir=/usr/include/apr-0
configure: error: -C: invalid option; use --help to show usage
error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.35104 (%build)

i tried without that -C option, and i got the (s)rpms, apr and apr-devel. i
installed them, everything seemed alright.

with db4 i wasn't so lucky:
rpm -ba db4.spec

autoconf: building aclocal.m4...
autoconf: running autoheader to build config.hin...
/usr/bin/m4: configure.in: No such file or directory
chmod: getting attributes of `config.hin': No such file or directory
autoconf: running autoconf to build configure
autoconf: configure.in: No such file or directory
configure: No such file or directory
+ exit 0

and it died after a short while.
