problem building 1.1.1 on an old RedHat 7.3 box

I'm trying to compile SVN 1.1.1 on an old RedHat 7.3 i386 box
(it gets better, later I have to try and make it work on 7.0!)

I've had a bash with the binary RPMs from
but we're using some versions of Cyrus that want later versions of
DB4 than the ones that the RPM wants. (specifically DB 4.1.25).

After installing Neon, the apache 2.0.48 (48? urk!) apr etc,
I can get the source RPM to start to compile, but the rpm won't
complete its build, I bashed at it a bit and eventually gave up on
RPMs and had a go with just the raw source.

Here's what I'm seeing when I try to configure subversion 1.1.1 :

./configure --disable-shared --enable-maintainer-mode

Configuring Subversion 1.1.1
creating config.nice
checking for gcc... gcc
config.status: creating svn_private_config.h
config.status: error: cannot find input file: svn_private_config.h.in

Google suggested that this was an autoconf problem with 7.3, see
Although I wasn't seeing all the other errors, just this one.
I have a pretty recent version of autoconf (relatively ...) :

autoconf --version
autoconf (GNU Autoconf) 2.59

So I don't think that's the problem.

Can anyone make a suggestion for what I can try next to get it
to compile?
