How does one generate mod_dav_svn.so ?

Hi everyone,

I have downloaded subversion-1.4.0.tar.gz and subversion-deps-tar.gz
tarballs, unpacked them and compiled them *but* even though I can see
the *.c files for mod_dav_svn.so, mod_dav_fs.so e.t.c. in the source
tree, no corresponding *.so files are generated. I think the make
skips them.

Can someone kindly provide help to sort this by giving me yes or no
replies to the following questions:

1.) Can the mod_dav_svn.so, mod_dav_fs.so, mod_dav_lock.so and
mod_authz_svn.so be built by compiling the subversion distro tree?

2.) Does the subversion configuration process *depend* on an existing
apache/http configuration setting?

3.) If the answer to 1.) is YES: Do the *.so files generated by the
subversion compile wind up under the SVN tree?

4.) If the answer to 1.) is NO: Does the Apache build process pull the
mod_dav_svn.c, mod_dav_fs.c, mod_dav_lock.c and mod_authz_svn.c files
form the SVN source tree and build them??

I am running Linux Fedora 5 and have successfully configured the httpd
2.2.0 ( Apache ) that came with the Fedora installation as a DAV
enabled server for SVN, complete with authentication and per directory
access authorization. Everything works fine, and I can get Tortoise
and IntelliJ IDEA on a windows box to successfully check in and check
out stuff via Apache.

I got the mod_dav_svn.so, mod_dav_fs.so, mod_dav_lock.so and
mod_authz_svn.so files by running yum. These work fine when you drop
them into the moules/ directory of httpd ( with the approprite
directives set in httpd.conf etc. ).

I need to be able to generate these files myself.

I would like sticking to *.tar balls. I have tried RPM with no success.

I have searched the mailing list archives and read the FAQ and tried
sorting my problem through experimentation before approaching this
list with my question.

I would appreaciate at least some YES or NO answers to the above
questions. Any additional information or hints would of course be

Thanking you in advance for any help
