make check fails on non-installed subversion

From: Alien <alien999999999_at_users.sourceforge.net>
Date: 2005-06-08 22:41:55 CEST

I'm using mdk 10.2 x86_64 but that doesn't really matter:

this issue is present in at least 1.1.4 and 1.2.0 (probably all versions):

this is for 1.2.0:

./configure --build=x86_64-mandrake-linux-gnu --prefix=/usr --exec-prefix=/usr
--bindir=/usr/bin --sbindir=/usr/sbin --sysconfdir=/etc --datadir=/usr/share
--includedir=/usr/include --libdir=/usr/lib64 --libexecdir=/usr/lib64
--localstatedir=/var/lib --sharedstatedir=/usr/com --mandir=/usr/share/man
--infodir=/usr/share/info --x-includes=/usr/X11R6/include
--x-libraries=/usr/X11R6/lib64 --with-apxs=/usr/sbin/apxs2 --with-apr=/usr
--with-apr-util=/usr --with-neon=/usr --with-berkeley-db=/usr
--with-swig=/usr --enable-shared --enable-dso --disable-mod-activation
--enable-static=no --with-jdk=/usr/java/jdk1.5.0_03


when i do make check now, the following tests fail:

as evidenced, most fail because of the specially linked cvsadmin.

a first bug is that libsvn_fs_base-1.so has been forgotten in the specially
linked cvsadmin (at least this one, may be more, i have strace on this, to
see which he finds and which libs it doesn't). when this is more or less
hackingly solved adding the current location to /etc/ld.so.conf, only a few
operations work (like the cvsadmin create in the first step of the basic 1

this indicates that a few more of these libs are probably required. also when
doing 'make install' and 'make check again' almost all checks work, just the
last 2 skipped ones keep being skipped, the last one probably because of my
using UTF-8 as standard encoding and the reverting on, i donno why it's
skipped, it should be failed.

this issue would be easy to miss since most of you have subversion already, in
some form or other.

In short, you need subversion to successfully test subversions compilation,
which is not required at all. Most of these things should be easy to fix, and
since so much effort was put into making 'make check' work, it shouldn't
really go to waste and things should be fixed a bit for the later versions.

I have found this on 1.1.4 and spent a whole day trying to figure out why this
didn't work, and when i did 1.2.0, and still noticed the same problem, i
thought i'd let you guys know.

as a second thing I'd like to say that subversion's installing system isn't so
readable as most projects, i donno how things work in the svn repository (i
imagine you guys are not using CVS), but you should use automake as it really
simplifies and most recurrent stuff, granted it's a bit much overhead and a
lot of people complain about the lack of control; but really it's perfectly
doable and only developers really need this, and it's much more readable, and
easier to spot how things work and to see a small bug. this thing has been a
bit of a bitch to get to learn.

on top of that, you guys put too much stuff in one tarball, alot of the
dependencies are perfectly seperate and in my experience are totally
unnecessary, like including apr and aprutils, neon and etc... in your own
tarball, waste of network load and harder for people not to have multiple
versions of the same software installed... you should stick to svn itself...

i know these are just my feelings, and allthough i know lots of people will
agree with me, i also know that other people will disagree with me, none the
less, i'd rather have lots of small packages then a big tarball with

aside that, i do feel that the svn API is good, and did successfully address
all the problems with CVS, the implementation is a bit too diverse, maybe
it'd be better just to make svn basic libs and make all the clients and
server-possbilities, plugins, etc... into different packages and tarballs, or
at least a way to be able to distribute it in seperate tarballs.

besides the bugs, my thoughts on svn; i'd like to know if it has been
accounted for an easy way to communicate between servers, possibly sync,
possibliy on other matters...
