svn/apache and Berkeley DB error

From: Greg Ryan <gregr_at_it.usyd.edu.au>

I am trying to set up subversion and apache for the first time.

On a RedHat 9 system running a RH 2.4.20-8 kernel, I installed
BerkeleyDB.4.2, Apache 2.0.50 and subversion 1.0.5.

Manipulation of a subversion repository with the svn tools directly
works OK, but an attempt to use WebDAV access with something like:

        svn list 'http://mysvnserver/svn/repos'

fails:

        subversion/libsvn_ra_dav/util.c:661: (apr_err=160029)
        svn: PROPFIND request failed on '/svn/repos'
        subversion/libsvn_ra_dav/util.c:359: (apr_err=160029)
        svn:
        Could not open the requested SVN filesystem

with the apache error_log reporting:

        [Tue Nov 02 14:32:20 2004] [error] [client 129.78.10.173] (20014)Error string not specified yet: Berkeley DB error while opening environment for filesystem /usr/other/asksvn/repos/db:\nInvalid argument
        [Tue Nov 02 14:32:20 2004] [error] [client 129.78.10.173] Could not fetch resource information. [500, #0]
        [Tue Nov 02 14:32:20 2004] [error] [client 129.78.10.173] Could not open the requested SVN filesystem [500, #160029]
        [Tue Nov 02 14:32:20 2004] [error] [client 129.78.10.173] (84)Invalid or incomplete multibyte or wide character: Could not open the requested SVN filesystem [500, #160029]

I searched through some earlier discussions on the net which seemed
related, and found suggestions to build the BerkeleyDB distribution
with posix threads disabled. This was done with all related components
rebuilt and reinstalled, but the error persists.

Has anyone experienced similar or have any suggestions of where I'm
going wrong with this installation?
