Re: Trouble compiling 1.5.6

Hi All,

I figured it out.

I've seen this exact question asked elsewhere but not answered, so for future reference:

Previously I said I untarred and ran ./configure && make. I forgot to mention that a parent directory had a space in its name. configure stopped halfway because the space was not escaped correctly. I moved subversion-1.5.6/ to the root of my home and ran ./configure && make again. It now complained about libexpat.a halfway through the build.

configure caches its results for the next run. Because it produced garbage the first time, the whole build got borked.

I simply removed the whole directory and started over. It built correctly this time without a hitch.

Thanks to Ryan for trying to help. I will look at MacPorts but I generally shy away from package managers because they tend to pull in a ton of stuff.
