Confirmed. That is the version I build, based on Apache httpd 2.4.27 and APR 1.6.2.

In fact there is a zlib installed in a default location, but it is not as current as the zlib I want to use. So I compile it myself (zlib 1.2.11), install it in my path and want to compile subversion using this new zlib.

I just ran that command again. I see this:

From this output I would conclude the system-supplied library is not found/accepted as the headers (or zlib-devel) is not installed.

Here is what I get:

SVN_APR_LIBS = -L /buildApache/build/httpd-2.4.27/srclib/apr -lapr-1

I may need more information here. How would I find the desired output/command?

Meanwhile I am playing around with
env LDFLAGS='-Wl,-R$PREFIX/openssl/lib,-R$PREFIX/zlib/lib' ./configure .......

It seems this helps to set the run path in the executables and libraries, but I am still trying to figure out whether Subversion was compiled using the correct libraries.
