Hi Mabas,

When you type "make swig-py", Subversion does not build external
packages such as apr-util. (This could be considered a bug in the
Subversion build system, but we haven't figured out a good way to fix
it yet.)

As a workaround, please try rebuilding Subversion with the following commands:
  ./configure --with-python=/usr/local/bin/python2.3
  make && make swig-py && make install && make install-swig-py

Thanks,

David
