Compiling subversion on SFU (Interix) 3.5

I asked the question a while ago, and, since I got no answer, I decided
to give it a go myself.

Having horribly failed on multiple occasions trying to compile the win32
build (mostly related to my insistence on building it on the compiler
from vs.net 2003), I had some apprehension. Fortunately, it was all

After installing the things I'd need (make sure you install the SFU SDK,
or you won't have gcc) and using pkg_add to get zlib and python, the
normal "./configure;make" process worked beautifully. I don't have bdb,
and configure must not have found openssl, so I ended up with a
non-https non-bdb binary.

I did, however, run into 2 failures when running "make check":

The first in "commit_tests.py 17: commit files and dirs with URI-unsafe
characters", on the line that calls "os.mkdir(nasty_dir)", which I would
expect to fail, because, this is, after all, ntfs, and you can't have a
directory called "working_copies/commit_tests-17/#![]{}()<>%"

The second failure I don't understand. It's in "prop_tests.py 11: set,
get, and delete a revprop change". The log is as follows:

CMD: svn "propset" "--revprop" "-r" "0" "cash-sound" "cha-ching!"
"working_copies/prop_tests-11" "--config-dir"
<TIME = 0.202562>
svn: 'pre-revprop-change' hook failed with error output:

FAIL: prop_tests.py 11: set, get, and delete a revprop change

The pre-revprop-change hook, if I understand the test, is nothing but
"exit 0", but it seems to be failing.

I don't know if anyone cares enough to want to look into this, but I'll
keep my setup around for a while just in case. Other than that, it seems
to build and operate flawlessly. Excellent work!
