Re: Problems upgrading 1.1.3 to 1.2.0

You may need to reinstall at least Subversion and possibly apr to get
it to work correctly.

The first few times I installed 1.2.0 on FreeBSD, it didn't pass 'make check'.

Try this:

* Go to /usr/ports/devel/subversion/work/subversion-1.2.0 and run
'make check'. I am guessing you'll get a problem here.
* I don't know what the minimal fix is, but what worked for me was to
uninstall any existing Subversion, look for any remnants in
/usr/local, and so on. Reinstall devel/apr, using
APR_UTIL_WITHOUT_THREADS=yes (check the Makefile for the exact option
name). If you don't use BDB, also use

I've traded some emails with lev about this, and we don't think
there's an easy solution. There's something going on that I don't
quite understand, and I just don't have the time to investigate it. I
got it to the point that 'make check' passed everything and decided to
be happy about it.

99% of the time, I trust a FreeBSD port build to work correctly. For
Subversion, however, it's just always going to be necessary to double
check it.
