subversion 1.11.0 on FreeBSD 11.2: ... does not support the HTTP/DAV protocol

From: Dr. Rolf Jansen <rj_at_obsigna.com>

The default version of Subversion in the Ports of FreeBSD has been switched from 1.10.3 to 1.11.0 in the last week. After running the monthly update of my FreeBSD machines I cannot connect to HTTPS repositories anymore.

I submitted a bug report to FreeBSD, see: https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=232945

The FreeBSD subversion port maintainer, verified that the same issue happens with subversion 1.11 on Linux and Windows as well, and he asked me to report the issue here.

In the meantime I deinstalled all subversion packages built from the FreeBSD ports system, and I built and installed subversion 1.11.0 from the upstream sources (thats’s yours) - see below. Needless to say that 1.10.3 does not show the issue below, and of course the GitHub server does support HTTP/DAV.

# fetch http://mirror.nbtelecom.com.br/apache/subversion/subversion-1.11.0.tar.bz2
# tar -oxjf subversion-1.11.0.tar.bz2
# cd subversion-1.11.0
# ./configure
# make install clean

# svn --version
