problems with bdb and subversion on redhat 9

  We are migrating our main server to redhat 9 and in doing so have run
into problems getting subversion to work. The firsat tests yielded the
famous "Function not implemented" from db4 which we understand is from a
db4 compiled for NTPL when the kernel has no support for it. Adding NPTL
to our kernel is not a viable alternative for several reasons so I tried
just recompiling db4 with disable-posixmutexes. That didn't seem to make
a difference so now I'm trying to rebuild subversion itself but when I
try to rebuild the RPM, make test fails with

../../../../../subversion/bindings/swig/perl/native/t/1repos.....Berkeley DB error: Berkeley DB error while creating environment for filesystem /tmp/svn-perl-test-bkU79M/db:
Invalid argument: bdb: Berkeley DB library configured to support only
DB_PRIVATE environments
at ../../../../../subversion/bindings/swig/perl/native/t/1repos.t line

Which would seem to imply that my changes to db worked but that
subversion can't use it.

I even tried updating and building apr-util 0.9.6 with db4.2 to see if a
whole no combo would work better. Same problem.

So how can I get subversion to work on my redhat 9 based distro with a
non-redhat kernel?
