RE: hot-backup.py failed: Can't copy '/var/local/repositories/X' to '/var/local/backups/Y': File too large

From: Brian Fallik <fallik_at_assurtech.com>

The comments provide more information, but I'm still unsure what the next
steps are for us to restore our backup process. Do I follow Joe Orton's
comment and assume it's fixed in the Linux build?

Do I need to rebuild subversion from scratch with a new setting? Where do I
change this setting? In which version of subversion is the >2Gb file limit
fixed - only the APR branch? How can I be certain that branch is stable? I
previously installed svn via rpms, so I'm slightly hesitent to start
building a developer branch from scratch.

Are there special build parameters/settings that are used to produce the RH9
RPMs? Or is it all defaults?

Thanks,
brian
