Please keep the users@subversion.tigris.org in the CC so that others can
benefit and I don't have to repeat myself over and over. :-)

Well, if you want to use my RPMs then I dropped support for BDB in RHEL3
RPMs. There may be other RPMs you could use, see the Subversion downloads
directory. However beware. Some of the RPMs that other people (including
RedHat) use the BDB 4.1.25 which has known problems with Subversion.

Yes, you could look at the Subversion repository back before I dropped
support for DB in RHEL3 to see how I compiled it.
