By running 'subversion/svn/svn upgrade'. (but see below --- you
shouldn't need to upgrade your working copy)

Most likely yes. You didn't paste the complete 'make' output, but I bet
that you get the error during the very last step (which runs svnversion
on your working copy). In which case, have a look at the
'revision-install' target of the Makefile --- most likely the error
you're seeing can be ignored, since the Makefile tries both the just-built
svnversion and the system's svnversion.
Didn't 'make install' have exit code of zero?
(You can check by 'make install; echo $?')
