What in the? OK, Stop trying to compile system-provided software from
tarballs. Seriously: you'll just give yourself an atomic wedgie trying to do
that, especially with somf of the vagaries in SuSE. Wherever possible, use
the available built-in RPM packages.

Second, HTTPD version 2.2 is not yet well supported for Subversion. Go back
to using the built-in HTTPD for SuSE, unless you want to be one of the
developers who works out the problems.

Third, if you need the latest version of Subversion, why not use the SRPM to
recompile for your SuSE release? Pretty good ones are available from the
Subversion website.

Fouth, does it work with "file://" based operations?
