Subversion 1.6.x build "configure Warning"

FYI here is the message:
 Quick question our Subversion build seemed to go OK but configure gave a
configure: WARNING: unrecognized options: --enable-shared, --with-zlib,
--with-swig, --enable-ssl, --with-ssl, --with-apxs
we usually have these options listed in the configure command line. are they
no longer needed there ?
It seems the build did include them.
We are planning on upgrading from 1.4.x to 1.6.5 I need to know if this
warning is an issue and how to resolve it.

From Mike P.

The nature of 'configure' is that the top-level Subversion 'configure' will
try to invoke the 'configure' scripts of other things (APR, APR-Util, Neon,
etc.) It can't know which of the options you pass it apply to each of those
secondary 'configure' programs, so it passes them all. Some of those
'configure' programs will use some of the options you provided on the
command-line; some will silently ignore the options they don't recognize;
and some will print the warning you saw.

It's a *completely* ignore-able warning. Build Subversion as you always


Great thanks for the quick response.... I just hope I don't get conditioned
to ignore warnings. It would be nice if configure could indicate which
"other things" don't recognize the options, this may require multiple
warning lines , but incase of a problem at least we would know which program
rejected the option.

Thanks for the response Mike.
