Alright, so here is how I went about trying to do just that. Stick with
me because the problem still persists, this is a bit of information

I went to my library directory. Luckily it is not very busy in there
since I don't build that many things from scratch.

[root@jackd lib]# pwd
[root@jackd lib]# rm -rf *svn*
[root@jackd lib]# rm -f *neon*

I `rm -rf`'d my extracted tarball to get a fresh source directory. I
just checked the MD5 sums and they match, so it's not a bad tarball.

[root@jackd sandbox]# ./configure \
--with-ssl \
--with-berkeley-db=/usr/local/BerkeleyDB.4.2 \
--with-swig=/usr/local/bin/swig &> ~/svn-configure-Apr12.out

The interesting parts are here...

[root@jackd sandbox]# grep "ython\|swig" ~/svn-configure-Apr12.out
checking for python2... /usr/bin/python2
checking for Python 2.0 or newer
configure: Enabled swig binding: perl

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ is this ok if blank?

config.status: creating subversion/bindings/swig/perl/native/Makefile.PL
mkdir subversion/bindings/swig/java/build

So I did a `make && make install` then a `make swig-py && make install-

Same damn error when I try to `import svn.repos` in the python

ImportError: /usr/lib/python2.2/site-packages/libsvn/_repos.so:
undefined symbol: svn_swig_py_thunk_log_receiver

But strings shows the symbol exists in the file somewhere.

[root@jackd subversion-1.1.4]# strings /usr/lib/python2.2/site-
packages/libsvn/_repos.so | grep thunk

I've attached the gzip'd text capture of swig-python make && make
install, maybe someone will be able to pick something out of it.

One last thing, I had some libraries in /usr/lib from an _OLD_ binary
client 0.32.1-5 (remember FC1), that shouldn't be effecting my build
should it? Anyway, I removed the RPM with -e.
