[Fixed] Problems with Subversion 1.5.1 and svn+ssh on OSX

Hi All,
    It was brought to my attention that the Subversion 1.5.1 binary
hosted by CollabNet was broken. Basically, with the 1.5.1 OSX binary,
anytime you accessed a repository exposed via svn+ssh, you'd get an

svn: Cannot negotiate authentication mechanism

This was caused by my linking to Apple's libsasl2 libraries, which
upon googling have been known to have issues. After some trial and
error, I have built and tested a new, and working, Subversion 1.5.1
binary for OSX, with SASL support, that you can download here:


This new release (Subversion 1.5.1-2 Universal) bundles libsasl2 and
all authentication plugins maintained in the Cyrus SASL sources. For
those of you that have the 1.5.1 binary that is broken, feel free to
upgrade to fix this issue.

Take care,
