Can't build subversion without ra_local support ('file' scheme)

Dear friends!

I'm trying to build subversion from source with disabled ra_local
Module, but so far with no success.
I have searched this mailing list and googled a bit, have found a bit
old thread: http://svn.haxx.se/dev/archive-2004-02/0796.shtml
where it is said that for disabling ra_local one should build subversion
without berkeley db support, i.e. with configure option:

here is my configure script (on Solaris 5.10):

/configure --prefix=/vol/software/subversion-1.4.3
--with-swig=/vol/software/swig-1.3.29 --with-jdk=/usr/java --with-ssl
--enable-shared=no --with-neon=/vol/software/neon-0.25.5

apr and apr-util I'm getting from dependencies package. neon, version
0.25.5 has been installed separately.

interesting enough configure script even logs warning:

configure: WARNING: we have configured without BDB filesystem support

You don't seem to have Berkeley DB version 4.0.14 or newer
installed and linked to APR-UTIL. We have created Makefiles which
will build without the Berkeley DB back-end; your repositories will
use FSFS as the default back-end. You can find the latest version of
Berkeley DB here:

but still after...

make install

svn --version gives

svn, version 1.4.3 (r23084)
   compiled Sep 1 2008, 11:35:34

The following repository access (RA) modules are available:

* ra_dav : Module for accessing a repository via WebDAV (DeltaV) protocol.
  - handles 'http' scheme
  - handles 'https' scheme
* ra_svn : Module for accessing a repository using the svn network protocol.
  - handles 'svn' scheme
* ra_local : Module for accessing a repository on local disk.
  - handles 'file' scheme

I have already tried different scenarios: apr and apr-util built
separately, removed installation of berkeley db from the PATH...and
still no success.

So basically I can't get a point where it gets the link to berkeley db
(may be from some other library: swig, apr, apr-util, neon???) and why
it builds it even with the configure option --without-berkeley-db.

I have been trying to solve this problem for already two days and would
be very grateful for any hint!

Thank you in advance!
