Yikes, somebody doesn't mind taking a dump in public!
All I got to say is:
(a) works for me (including http & https) ... we don't use svn+ssh but I see
no reason it wouldn't work ... I know nothing of any sqlite issues you
allude to (nor do I care), so please put in the level of effort necessary
for things to work for you in your environment,
(b) other than building from source, there's no better way that I know to
get the latest svn 1.6 in rhel4 / rhel5. AKA, there are no rpm's available
that I know of, which I trust more than building from source as described.
