RE: Can't compile 1.1.1 on OS X ...

This got asked a while ago, I'm gong to cut and paste my answer from

I just went through this problem, here is how I solved it (I'm running
on a 10.3.6 machine)

DON'T use 1.0.9! Use the lastest source (see my comments below for why)

1) Download the latest stable source release (should be at
and download the 1.1.1 version (or whatever is the latest).
2) Open the INSTALL file, and read the instructions in section II
INSTALLATION->B. Building the Latest Source under Unix. Follow those
instructions. If you've never installed subversion before, then this is
going to mostly be running the autogen.sh script.
3) Once that script runs, you will be able to correctly run the
configure script, but you may have problems anyways. I solved them by
making everything statically linked, and by enabling maintainer mode
(./configure --enable-maintainer-mode --enable-static) Try the
different ways, it would be interesting to see what happens.
4) run 'make'
5) run 'make check' - not strictly necessary, but if there are any
problems, this will help catch them.
6) run 'make install' - I don't know if you need to be root or not for
this; I installed to a different directory, one where I can delete
everything to get back to my base system.

At this point, everything should be up and running.

A word of caution; the default repository type is the SleepyCat
(Berkeley) Database. Don't use that, it gets corrupted on a horribly
regular basis under OS X (I averaged 3-4 database corruptions per week,
and I'm the only one using this repository/server). Use the FSFS option
when creating a new repository instead, it seems more stable (make lots
of backups though! I don't KNOW that it is any more stable...) Also,
whenever you setup your default editors, don't use pico; it seems to
mangle the default log messages slightly, making your log files look a
little weird.

Good luck,
Cem Karan
