Re: Compiling Static Subversion Binaries on RHEL

Hi All,
    I found the culprit but I'm not sure why. When I pass the
"--enable-all-static" to configure for Subversion, that is what causes the
problem. The exact version of RHELS is "Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES release
4 (Nahant)", as per the /etc/redhat-release. If anyone has any input,
advice or suggestions, please let me know. At least I can build a partially
static Subversion instance which works for now.

Take care,

Jeremy
