1.4.0 install difficulties

From: Daniel Armbrust <daniel.armbrust_at_comcast.net>

I am trying to upgrade our 1.3.1 installation to 1.4.0 - building from

The system is Fedora Core 3.
My apache server is 2.0.52.
My configure line was:

"./configure --prefix=/usr/local/subversion-1.4.0/

The "make" step seems to work ok, and I had no problems with previous
versions of subversion. However - now, when I run "make install" it's
ending with stuff like this:

/usr/bin/install -c .libs/svnversion
/usr/bin/install -c -m 644 ./subversion/svn/svn.1
/usr/bin/install -c -m 644 ./subversion/svnadmin/svnadmin.1
/usr/bin/install -c -m 644 ./subversion/svndumpfilter/svndumpfilter.1
/usr/bin/install -c -m 644 ./subversion/svnlook/svnlook.1
/usr/bin/install -c -m 644 ./subversion/svnserve/svnserve.8
/usr/bin/install -c -m 644 ./subversion/svnserve/svnserve.conf.5
/usr/bin/install -c -m 644 subversion/svnversion/svnsync.1
/usr/bin/install: cannot stat `subversion/svnversion/svnsync.1': No such
file or directory
/usr/bin/install -c -m 644 ./subversion/svnversion/svnversion.1

Libraries have been installed in:

If you ever happen to want to link against installed libraries
in a given directory, LIBDIR, you must either use libtool, and
specify the full pathname of the library, or use the `-LLIBDIR'
flag during linking and do at least one of the following:
   - add LIBDIR to the `LD_LIBRARY_PATH' environment variable
     during execution
   - add LIBDIR to the `LD_RUN_PATH' environment variable
     during linking
   - use the `-Wl,--rpath -Wl,LIBDIR' linker flag
   - have your system administrator add LIBDIR to `/etc/ld.so.conf'

See any operating system documentation about shared libraries for
more information, such as the ld(1) and ld.so(8) manual pages.

Assuming installing a .so rather than a libtool archive.

No such file or directory
apxs:Error: Command failed with rc=65536
make: *** [install-mods-shared] Error 1

Three things caught my eye - and I'm not sure which (if any of them) are
trying to point out real problems:

gcc: @inst_prefix_dir@: No such file or directory
libtool: link: warning:
`/usr/lib/gcc/i386-redhat-linux/3.4.4/../../..//libexpat.la' seems to be
grep: /usr/local/apache2.0.52/modules/mod_dav_svn.la: No such file or

The end result after the failure is that I don't get any .so files in my
apache modules folder.

Possibly related - when I run "make check" - I get one failure:

Running all tests in switch_tests.py...FAILURE

Googling the libtool warnings brings back lots of reports - but nothing
I could find that would tell me whether or not this was actually a
problem, or just an extra warning.

The apxs error brings back a few hits, but again, nothing that helped me
figure out what the real problem is.

Yet another possible clue - if I try to run configure without extracting
the subversion-deps-1.4.0 file - then I get this error:

checking for Apache module support via DSO through APXS... found at
checking httpd version... recent enough
configure: Apache Portable Runtime (APR) library configuration
checking for APR... yes
checking APR version... 0.9.4
wanted regexes are 0\.9\.[7-9] 0\.9\.1[0-9] 1\.
configure: error: invalid apr version found

Do I have some sort of incompatibility between what apache was built
with, and what subversion wants?

Thanks for any advice,
