RE: Subversion 1.4.2 compilation with apr 0.9.6

 You could compile an up to date version of APR from apache2 it's up to like
1.5 of something. Subversion requires a very very old version of the actual
binary. I believe there's even a way to just compile APR and APU. I've
posted on these kinds of problems with APR before, as there are some
important issues to watch out for when compiling the v. 1.x apr / apu
binaries (mostly naming issues.).

Subject: Subversion 1.4.2 compilation with apr 0.9.6

Hi,

I am trying to compile svn 1.4.2 on Fedora 4, which has apr 0.9.6, and
compilation fails because configuration requires apr >= 0.9.7. I tried hard
to upgrade both apr and apr-util, but only combination that works was apr
0.9.{11-13} with apr-util 0.9.7 (which probably is not a good thing). Even
so, subversion 1.4.2 compilation fails on this scenario with this:

/local2/costa/redhat/BUILD/subversion-1.4.2/subversion/svn
/local2/costa/redhat/BUILD/subversion-1.4.2/subversion/libsvn_fs_base/.libs/
libsvn_fs_base-1.so: undefined reference to `db_create'
/local2/costa/redhat/BUILD/subversion-1.4.2/subversion/libsvn_fs_base/.libs/
libsvn_fs_base-1.so: undefined reference to `db_env_create'
/local2/costa/redhat/BUILD/subversion-1.4.2/subversion/libsvn_fs_base/.libs/
libsvn_fs_base-1.so: undefined reference to `db_version'
/local2/costa/redhat/BUILD/subversion-1.4.2/subversion/libsvn_fs_base/.libs/
libsvn_fs_base-1.so: undefined reference to `db_strerror'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make: *** [subversion/svn/svn] Error 1
error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.6901 (%build)
    Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.6901 (%build)

I then reverted back to 0.9.6 and tweaked regexes on 'configure' script to
allow apr 0.9.6, and compilation apparently succeeded. But, I wouldn't trust
a version generated this way unless svn developers tell me it's ok...

Any tips? Is apr >= 0.9.7 really needed? Any additional info I could
provide? We really need svn client 1.4.2 on our FC4 stations...

(actually we need to upgrade from FC4, but that's a whole different
problem...)

TIA

Andre
