Newbie's same old question about Cygwin

From: Marcos Chaves <mchvs_at_hotmail.com>

Hi there.

Famous problem: build Subversion on Win32 when MSVC is not available (and
then use tools like gettext, for example).

I know that I'm not the first one here having problems trying to build
Subversion with Cygwin. I searched through the users and dev mailing list
archives and could find solutions to some of the problems that I had, but
now I'm stuck and I wonder if it is not already clear on these lists that
this is not the right way to go, since I don't see too much about it lately.

Is there anybody able to build Subversion using a Unix-like environment on
Win32? (I know, it's a classic newbie question, but I really couldn't find
the answer.) The INSTALL file just says that "there have been rumors" that
it could be done with Cygwin.

Thanks for the help.

By the way, here is where I'm stuck right now:

Since apr-util should be patched to understand Berkeley DB 4.2
(http://subversion.tigris.org/project_faq.html#linux-bdb42-build), I can't
use a pre-compiled package. When the apr-util build process calls
"apr-config --srcdir", the given path will break the build (it points to
/home/max/...). If I try to compile apr so "apr-config --srcdir" would point
to a real path on my system, the ./configure step stops with:

    Construct Makefile and header files.
    configure: creating ./config.status
    config.status: creating
    .infig.status: error: cannot find input file:

Any ideas? I guess that if I don't find a simpler (cleaner?) solution, my
next step will be to start patching the generated "configure" file. I don't
like it but the same approach is used to make apr-util works with Berkeley
DB 4.2...
