What are you trying to achive by building SVN with the Makefile from
I wrote this Makefile for my own purposes because I need builds with
debugging symbols enabled in all dependencies. I use it on OpenBSD.
In the past, some SVN developers have used it on various Linux platforms.
At present I believe I'm the only active user.
This Makefile is not intended for setting up production installations of SVN.
It might serve as an example if you'd like to do a custom build of SVN and
its dependencies. But I won't provide support for purposes other than SVN
If your goal is setting up a production environment, I would recommend
using binary packages system from http://subversion.apache.org/packages.html
If you don't use precompiled binaries you're essentially repeating the work
of a LInux distro package maintainer. If you insist on compiling your own
I'd recommend you compile against system libraries shipped with CentOS 7.2
as much as possible to avoid the kinds of problems you're seeing.
Building a Subversion release tarball, or even a trunk checkout, should be
possible with the proper RPM -devel packages installed for all dependencies.
