Max,

I have proceeded down the route of building Subversion from scratch. I
patched, built and installed BDB 4.2.52 installed to the default
location (/usr/local/BerkeleyDB.4.2) In an effort to minimise confusion
I decided to build a separate Apache 2 for use with Subversion (I'm
installing a separate BDB so why not?) I built Apache using the
following options:

./configure --with-berkeley-db=/usr/local/BerkeleyDB.4.2 \
--with-apr=/usr/local/apache2 \
--with-apr-util=/usr/local/apache2 \
--with-neon=/usr

(I had installed neon from a package, and neon-config is in /usr/bin.)

At the end of the configure script I got the following:
configure: error: APR-UTIL was installed independently, it won't be
                         possible to use the specified Berkeley DB:
/usr/local/BerkeleyDB.4.2

Advice I have seen suggests using the --with-dbm option however the only
value I have seen supplied in examples is --with-dbm=db4 - since I have
BDB 4.1.25 and 4.2.52 installed, db4 isn't really specific enough, is
it? Is there a more precise option I could be using?

Sorry for being a pain in the ass...

Maurice
