Building 1.4.0 on Fedora Core 5

I am trying to build subversion 1.4.0 to use the Apache server that comes with Fedora Core 5.

It would really help if some one could provide an idiot's guide to the process. Being a
non-programmer, I don't even know how to tell if the build process has succeeded. Can I assume that
if the last lines don't contain "Error" that I am home free?

Reams of messages fly by too fast to be read. Even piping the output through "less" doesn't always
help. The make process seems to override the scrolling control that "less" is supposed to provide.
Here's some of the things I noticed and worry about:


I get

apxs:Error: /usr/bin/apu-1-config not found!.
checking for Apache module support via DSO through APXS... found at /usr/sbin/apxs
checking httpd version... recent enough
apxs:Error: /usr/bin/apu-1-config not found!.
apxs:Error: /usr/bin/apu-1-config not found!.

Is this a problem? The script continues and completes with no indication of failure.
I don't know what apu-1-config is or where I would get it.

Is this a problem? What does it mean?
I tried to use "svnadmin help" and got this bizarre response:
  svnadmin: Mismatched FS module version for 'bdb': found 1.4.0, expected 1.3.2
Surely this error should not affect the display of Help information!
Also, this error is very strange given that the configure script told me
  configure:26231: WARNING: we have configured without BDB filesystem support
  You don't seem to have Berkeley DB version 4.0.14 or newer
  installed and linked to APR-UTIL.  We have created Makefiles which
  will build without the Berkeley DB back-end; your repositories will
  use FSFS as the default back-end.
Have I done something wrong? Has anyone succeeded in installing Subversion 1.4.0 on Fedora Core 5?
