./configure: line 1575: syntax error near unexpected token `config.nice'

From: Melchior FRANZ <mfranz_at_aon.at>

I'm trying to compile svn 1.2.1 from the repository on Linux,
libc 2.3.3 with gcc 3.3.4 (pre 3.3.5 20040809; SuSE 9.2). Quite new
apr and apr-utils are installed.

Everything runs fine until I configure. This bails out with a complaint
about a syntax error in "SVN_CONFIG_NICE(config.nice)". Looks like it
doesn't know what SVN_CONFIG_NICE is meant to do. I found a definition
for it in build/ac-macros/svn-macros.m4, but this file is apparently
not read, nor is its name even mentioned in *any* of the files.

Now I wonder how this is supposed to work. From where should configure
know the definition of SVN_CONFIG_NICE. The documentation implies that
./autogen.sh && ./configure should be all that is necessary.

Can anyone give me a hint?


PS: I know that I could download the tar.gz. But I have reasons for
    wanting to compile from the repository.

You can run ./configure now.

Running autogen.sh implies you are a maintainer. You may prefer
to run configure in one of the following ways:

./configure --enable-maintainer-mode
./configure --disable-shared
./configure --enable-maintainer-mode --disable-shared

Note: If you wish to run a Subversion HTTP server, you will need
Apache 2.0. See the INSTALL file for details.
