Re: --with-apxs --with-apr --with-apr-util - what do I need?

Thanks. I added the subversion-deps-1.4.0.tar.gz files to the
subversion-1.4.0.tar.gz files before compiling. The problem seems
to be that the resulting mod_dav_svn.so uses different APR libraries
than the Apache server provided in Fedora Core 5.

Fedora hasn't released any RPM packages for SVN beyond 1.3, so
maybe it is not possible.

Next, I will try removing Fedora's Apache and install the latest
Apache from the source .tar.gz. Thanks for the suggested configure
command line. When I compile SVN, should I leave out the
subversion-deps files so that the apr from apache is used?
It seems the most likely way to match mod_dav_svn with Apache.
