Fwd: Unable to build static SVN 1.3 clients on Solaris 8

Hi all. I sorted this out, and I thought I'd add to
this thread what happened.

Short story: I was ignorant. :)

On Solaris, using the --enable-all-static flag with
configure is not going to work, because static
versions of libraries are not provided by Solaris.

My main goal was removing the requirement we have now
of updating the LD_LIBRARY_PATH to run our Subversion
clients. This is because our GCC installation in not
installed to /usr/lib, but elsewhere on the

After some digging around, I found out about providing
a runtime library path to the linker via the -R
option. Once I provided this, it compiled fine,
linked fine and ran fine without needing the location
of libgcc.so in the LD_LIBRARY_PATH of the environment
running the client.

Final two points. First, this site helped me a


Second, once I knew this, I suddenly realised that the
messages written out during the make install told me
this. So the answer was in front of my face, and I
was too stupid to see it. :)

So, not a SVN problem. Purely pilot error. But, hey,
I learned something new about compiling on Solaris!

Sorry for the interruption.
