How to build GNOME Keyring for Subversion

I am trying to build Subversion 1.6.12 with GNOME Keyring support. I
have tried GNOME Keyring 2.30.3 downloaded from
The configure and make of this GNOME Keyring version have been done with
two pkg-config files created: gcr-0.pc and gp11-0.pc but no
gnome-keyring-1.pc generated.

I have also tried to install GNOME Keyring 2.28.2 downloaded from
This version has an endless list of dependencies:

GNOME Keyring 2.28.2: GConf-2.28.0, GTK+-2.18.7, intltool-0.40.6,
Libgcrypt-1.4.5, and libtasn1-2.5

GConf-2.28.0: ORBit2-2.14.17 and polkit-0.94

polkit-0.94: D-Bus GObject Bindings-0.5, intltool-0.40.6,
Linux-PAM-1.1.1, gobject-introspection-0.6.8, and DocBook XML DTD-4.5

... ...

That looks terrifying. I am almost giving up midway

I'd like to know your experience on building subversion with GNOME
Keyring. Which GNOME Keyring version works well with svn 1.6.12 and is
there an easier way to do it? Your advice will be much appreciated.
