Windows build problem

From: Vaigl, James _at_ AS <_at_>

Hi All,

I'm trying to build 1.1.1, server and client, in Windows with
Apache 2.0.52, using Visual Studio + the most recent SDK update.
I want to use FSFS, not BDB. Following the note in section I.5
("If you will only use the fsfs repository filesystem, or if you
are building a Subversion client that will only speak to remote
(networked) repositories, you don't need it."). I didn't bother
to download it; I prefer to NOT have it around so I can be sure
nothing is referring to it.

When I follow the instructions in Section E in INSTALL
($LastChangedDate: 2004-09-14), when I get down to building
Apache, there's bit (in E.4) about "python gen-make.py..."
that includes "--with-berkeley..."

It looks like if I were building on Unix, I'd run configure
with --without-berkeley-bdb, but gen-make.py doesn't know
what that means. If I just leave off the two berkeley things,
i.e., run this...

    (extra line breaks added for email readability...)
     C:\svn\src-trunk>python gen-make.py -t dsp

...then Apache builds fine, but when I get down to building
subversion, this fails:

  C:\svn\src-trunk>msdev subversion_msvc.dsw /USEENV
       /MAKE "__ALL_TESTS__ - Win32 Release"
  [...lots of successful build output...]
  -----------Configuration: mod_dav_svn - Win32 Release-----------
  LINK : fatal error LNK1181: cannot open input file "libdb42.lib"
  Error executing link.exe.
I tried to just edit the project file to remove the reference to
the library, but then I get unresolved externals. Then I tried
to remove the libsvn_fs_base project from the workspace, since
it explicitly calls out bdb code, but then I fail because the
svn_fs_base__init() routine is missing:

       Creating library
       and object
    libsvn_fs-1.lib(fs-loader.obj) :
    error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol _svn_fs_base__init
     ..\..\..\Release\subversion\mod_dav_svn\mod_dav_svn.so : fatal error

Are the instructions wrong in that I *NEED* bdb to build even if
I don't want to run with it?

I've killed several days trying vc6-build.bat, Cygwin, and now the
detailed manual instructions. I'd like to understand what's wrong
with the detailed instructions (or my following of them) for now.

Any help greatly appreciated.
