I was a competent software engineer earlier today.. but it seems that
Subversion 1.2.x fails to build "out of the box" on my SuSE 9.1 Linux
installation as well.

I checked out a fresh copy of the 1.2.x branch...

[claims it won't build with BDB support - that's fine.]

So I have to wonder how things were "worse" before this autoconf
thing. :-)

The procedure appears to be quite unreliable. I've had it "just
work" when compiling 1.1.x, but the fact that it goes through all
that hoopla only to fail is a tad depressing.
