That's what I was thinking. I'm on a team that builds and sells a
version of Apache 2.2 on z/OS (as "IBM HTTP Server") and we still
couldn't get subversion going. I don't think it's subversion's fault;
autoconf, libtool, etc are not well supported on z/OS. Oh, and there's
no python, which subversion seems to want during builds (if memory
serves; it's been a while).
