compiling svnserve

        I am in the process of setting up subversion on a freebsd box. I plan to set
up a repository on this freebsd box. I also plan to use svnserve on the
freebsd box to allow developers access to the repository accross our LAN.

My question is regarding the creation of the svnserve binary. This section in
the INSTALL file included with the subversion tarball doesn't indicate how the
binary is created:-

   E. Alternative: 'svnserve' and ra_svn

       An alternative network layer is libsvn_ra_svn (on the client
       side) and the 'svnserve' process on the server. This is a
       simple network layer that speaks a custom protocol over plain
       TCP (documented in libsvn_ra_svn/protocol):

          $ svnserve -d # becomes a background daemon
          $ svn checkout svn://localhost/usr/local/svn/repository

       You can use the "-r" option to svnserve to set a logical root
       for repositories, and the "-R" option to restrict connections to
       read-only access. ("Read-only" is a logical term here; svnserve
       still needs write access to the database in this mode, but will
       not allow commits or revprop changes.)

       'svnserve' has built-in CRAM-MD5 authentication (so you can
       use non-system accounts), and can also be tunneled over SSH
       (so you can use existing system accounts). Please read chapter
       6 in the Subversion Book (http://svnbook.red-bean.com) for
       details on these features.

The preceding text in the section entitled "III. BUILDING A SUBVERSION SERVER"
describes how to build and setup apache to provide repository access.

Do I have to go through this process in order to have the svnserve binary compiled?

The overall question is: Given that I don't want to use apache as a repository
access method, how do I build svnserve from the sources in the official release
source tarball?

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide,

and cheers,
