1.5.0-rc9: build question + serf => segfaults

From: Kylo Ginsberg <kylo.ginsberg_at_gmail.com>

I'm trying out 1.5.0-rc9 on a Fedora 7 x86_64 client. The server is
svn 1.4.3, also on Fedora 7 x86_64.

Two questions, possibly related:

1) Building this was a hassle, see below for the script I ended up
with. I'm curious if others have built more easily on like platforms
or see any problems with the script below. I'm not an experienced
distro builder so I may well have missed something.

2) If I set http-library = serl, I see segfaults while checking out
frequently (not always on the same file or revision though). I also
get a segfault if I ls/co/etc a non-existent directory on my
repository. If I access http://svn.collab.net/repo, I have yet to see
a segfault, although if I access a non-existent directory there I do
not get the expected "non-existent" msg, I just get no msg at all.
And everything works great if http-library = neon. Before I get much
further in debugging this: is a 1.5 serf client expected to behave
well with older servers?

Thanks for any help.
