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
APR_UTIL_WITHOUT_BERKELEY_DATABASE=yes as well.

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.
