I thought I had previously posted the relevant parts of the configure
logs; I'll need to dig them out again, I guess.

Ummm, if I pass --without-berkeley-db to subversion's configure, it
needs to pass the appropriate flags to apr-util. (And it might well be: I don't
remember the exact problem I was seeing.)

Then why are the configures looking for SWIG and Python? That I *do* remember.

Is making --client-config an alias for a combination of various
--without* and --disable* options really a big deal? (Forget not
building svnadmin et. al., you're right, it's not that big a deal.)

Well, time for me to put up or shut up. :-) I God, I hate messing with


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