Aharon,

I did not apply any patches to either source files for DBD or SVN. Are
these really required?

I built 1.0.9 from scratch on FC1. My notes are here, they are not very
complete. In fact they are more of a "story" of how I got SVN compiled:
http://www.nesser.org/index.php?itemid=313

The well written INSTALL file recommends doing this before compiling:

   943 $ rm /usr/local/lib/libsvn*
   944
   945 If you have old subversion libraries sitting on your system,
   946 libtool will link them instead of the `fresh' ones in your tree.
   947 Remove them before building subversion.

For what it's worth, here was my configure line. You may or may not
want the SSL support:

[nesscg@jackd subversion-1.0.9]$ ./configure --with-ssl \
 --with-berkeley-db=/usr/local/BerkeleyDB.4.2 > ~/subversion.conf
