It must be a pleasure to never have to work on slow machines.

In particular, I could significant time on some of my machines if I
could tell it

- Don't even look for BDB
- Don't even look for Apache stuff
- Don't even look for SWIG, or python, or perl, or java.

(Yes, there are options to do that, and I use them. But they don't work
reliably - I think they are not always passed to the sub-configures.)

Max, I understand you don't care about this. Would you accept a patch
that implemented a reasonable --client-only, for those of us that do?
I think a reasonable 'client-only' definition is no BDB support, and
built only svn, no attempt to build the admin tools, webdav stuff,
language bindings, etc. For those of us who need to support a variety of
architectures locally, this would be useful. If nothing else, it would
shutup the people who can't find the --client-only configuration option.


"Outlook not so good." That magic 8-ball knows everything! I'll ask
about Exchange Server next.
