Re: OT: useless rant, Was: Building Subversion 1.2 on OS X 10.4 fails

SuSE Linux 9.1 -- I just built SVN from trunk a few days ago for the
first time and got this error as well. I had to go to YaST and
download the gdbm & gdbm-devel rpms to fix it. I also had to download
and build a few GNU utils (apr, automake, libtool) and download a copy
of neon & unzip srcs to my subversion dir and rename to /neon. :(

Hope that helps. gdbm is here: http://www.gnu.org/software/gdbm/gdbm.html
