I am facing the following errors when building the SVN project. I was
building SVN 1.6.5

+ echo '*** Finished regression tests on RA_SVN (SVN method) layer ***'
+ echo '*** Running regression tests on RA_DAV (HTTP method) layer ***'
+ make davautocheck CLEANUP=true FS_TYPE=bdb

Syntax error on line 14 of /root/rpms/build/subversion-1.
Error:\tApache has not been designed to serve pages while\n\trunning as
root. There are known race conditions that\n\twill allow any local user to
read any file on the system.\n\tIf you still desire to serve pages as root
then\n\tadd -DBIG_SECURITY_HOLE to the CFLAGS env variable\n\tand then
rebuild the server.\n\tIt is strongly suggested that you instead modify the
User\n\tdirective in your httpd.conf file to list a non-root\n\tuser.\n
make[1]: *** [davautocheck] Error 1

    Bad exit status from /root/rpms/tmp/rpm-tmp.55381 (%build)

I would be really glad If I get any help.
