Part of it, but a very small part as per the excerpt below. It lists just
a couple packages, ones that I know a little about already; however I don't
know what those things do, nor what happens when they are disabled. Also,
some packages are not even listed (eg, the "nls" package) and for those I
have even less info.

I'm curious if there's a doc set somewhere that describes all these
packages? I have yet to see anything in any docs (although I have yet to
do a thorough search--I was hoping someone here would point me in the right


Optional Packages:
   --with-PACKAGE[=ARG] use PACKAGE [ARG=yes]
   --without-PACKAGE do not use PACKAGE (same as --with-PACKAGE=no)
   --with-apr=PATH prefix for installed APR, path to APR build tree,
                           or the full path to apr-config
   --with-apr-util=PATH prefix for installed APU, path to APU build tree,
                           or the full path to apu-config
   --with-gnu-ld assume the C compiler uses GNU ld [default=no]
   --with-pic try to use only PIC/non-PIC objects [default=use
                           include additional configurations [automatic]
   --with-neon=PREFIX Determine neon library configuration based on
                           'PREFIX/bin/neon-config'. Default is to search for
                           neon in a subdirectory of the top source directory
                           and then to look for neon-config in $PATH.
   --with-apache=DIR Build static Apache module. DIR is the path to the
                           top-level Apache source directory.
   --with-apxs[=FILE] Build shared Apache module. FILE is the optional
                           pathname to the Apache apxs tool; defaults to
                           The Subversion Berkeley DB based filesystem library
                           requires Berkeley DB $db_version or newer. If you
                           specify `--without-berkeley-db', that library will
                           not be built. Otherwise, the configure script
                           that library if and only if APR-UTIL is linked
                           against a new enough version of Berkeley DB.

                           If and only if you are building APR-UTIL as part of
                           the Subversion build process, you may help APR-UTIL
                           to find the correct Berkeley DB installation by
                           passing a PATH to this option, to cause APR-UTIL to
                           look for the Berkeley DB header and library in
                           `PATH/include' and `PATH/lib'. If PATH is of the
                           form `HEADER:LIB', then search for header files in
                           HEADER, and the library in LIB. If you omit the
                           `=PATH' part completely, the configure script will
                           search for Berkeley DB in a number of standard
   --with-ssl This option does NOT affect the Subversion build
                           process in any way. It enables OpenSSL support in
                           the Neon library. If and only if you are building
                           Neon as an integrated part of the Subversion build
                           process, rather than linking to an already installed
                           version of Neon, you probably want to pass this
                           option so that Neon (and so indirectly, Subversion)
                           will be capable of https:// access.
   --with-editor=PATH Specify a default editor for the subversion client.
   --with-zlib enable zlib support
   --with-jdk=PATH Try to use 'PATH/include' to find the JNI headers.
                           If PATH is not specified, look for a Java
                           Development Kit at JAVA_HOME.
   --with-jikes=PATH Specify the path to a jikes binary to use it as your
                           Java compiler. The default is to look for jikes
                           (PATH optional). This behavior can be switched off
                           by supplying 'no'.
   --with-swig=PATH Try to use 'PATH/bin/swig' to build the swig
                           bindings. If PATH is not specified, look for a
                           'swig' binary in your PATH.
                           install Ruby bindings in SITEDIR (default is same as
                           ruby's one)
   --with-junit=PATH Specify a path to the junit JAR file.
