Thanks for the reply!

I know I had to (or I think it forced me to :-) install BDB before I
could make svn. According to the book (I know it's not totally ready
for 1.1 but it's what I got :-) says:

$ svn --version
svn, version 1.1.0 (Release Candidate 2)
    compiled Aug 12 2004, 11:26:45

The following repository access (RA) modules are available:

* ra_dav : Module for accessing a repository via WebDAV (DeltaV) protocol.
   - handles 'http' schema
* ra_local : Module for accessing a repository on local disk.
   - handles 'file' schema
* ra_svn : Module for accessing a repository using the svn network protocol.
   - handles 'svn' schema

I need the ra_local. I guess you're telling me the "file schema" means
I'm using FSFS? OK, I guess I can deal with that.

As for the APR not having large file support, as I compiled it on my
system which does have LF support, I fail to see how this error could
happen. ...testing small C program...

Ok, I could not create large files either until I did 2 things:

2. did creat(file, O_RDWR | O_LARGEFILE)

So does anyone have any suggesstions on what to do with APR? Or if I
switch to BDB, will this even still matter? If switching to BDB will
save me, I can do that, but what do I need to tell svn create to make it so?
