installing svn 1.5.1 next to 1.4.3 on RHEL 4

   ok, i think i know what i want to try in terms of an upgrade test
from 1.4.3 to 1.5.1. currently, this RHEL 4 system has svn 1.4.3
(installed from rpm), configured to use apache and mod_dav_svn. all
that is set up nicely, and i do not want to muck with that part of the
setup in any way.

    my thought is to download the source tarball for svn 1.5.1,
configure it to use a non-root, personal prefix in my home directory,
then "make" and "make install" to install the end results in my
personal directory, at which point i can adjust my search path to pick
up *those* binaries rather than the system-wide ones in /usr/bin. and
all the while, leaving everything else exactly the way it is and
having the new 1.5.1 version of svn use everything else that's already
in place.

    in short, how would i "configure" the 1.5.1 source to build me
*just* the executables, which will then play happily with absolutely
everything that's already been set up. i already have the "--prefix"
part down but my first attempt still tried to install the apache2
modules under /usr/local. is this where i'd use the "--with-apxs"
config option?

    anyway, i'm hoping you get the idea. i figure i'm close, i just
can't quite finish it off.
