Oh, dear. I went through this with SCO OpenServer 5.0.x last year.

I urge you to climb your way up the toolchain: Try to install, or
build, components like "neon" and "SQLite" first.

Do you have a recent enough version of Python and autoconf to run
"autoconf" first? And is there any reason not to jump to Subversion
