Yes. That is normal. Even though you specified --without-berkeley-db
on the configure command line. I think that it should not do that
given the command line option specifying the contrary. But so it is

Because you directed it to compile without BDB support you should
ignore that warning. Unless you really want to build the BDB and use
it. But most people have converted to the "fsfs" instead and since
this avoids the extra work of building the BDB that is certainly what
I recommend.

You should now have the subversion client installed in your
/usr/local/bin directory. It will be called "svn".

You are back in normal space. There is nothing system specific here.
Please keep questions such as this on the mailing list.

Here is the book. It is also available in paper from O'Reilly. I now
have two, one for home and one for work.


Start here:


To launch the client just run "svn".

  svn help

That is the most important command to know.
