configure not finding serf lib

Wondering if I could get help with configuring serf 1.39 with subversion
1.12 on a SLES 11.4 box.


SLES 11.4 just came off long term support.

We still have to support quite a few SLES 11.4 machines. Our svn admin has
tightened security requirements and the svn revisions we were using on SLES
11.4 no longer work.

We are attempting to remediate by compiling subversion 1.12 on a SLES 11.4.

We are accustomed to compiling Openssl from tarballs on SLES 11.4. We are
currently using 1.0.2.

The first attempt to use a freshly compiled svn went as follows:

dev_at_cardamom:/NAS/dev> svn --version

svn, version 1.12.0 (r1857323)

   compiled May 15 2019, 09:35:22 on x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu

dev@cardamom:/NAS/dev> svn co https://svn/xxx/zzz/trunk/APPS

svn: E170000: Unrecognized URL scheme for 'https://svn/xxx/zzz/trunk/APPS

Looks like we need to configure with serf. Download 1.39. Install SCons.
Build as follows:

dev_at_cardamom:~/wrk/sandbox/svn/serf-1.3.9> scons
OPENSSL=/home/dev/wrk/openssl_build/save/1.0.2n APR=/usr/local/apr

Ran "scons install" as root.

Rebuild svn:

dev_at_cardamom:~/wrk/sandbox/svn/subversion-1.12.0> ./configure
--with-lz4=internal --with-utf8proc=internal --with-serf=/usr/local

An appropriate version of serf could not be found, so libsvn_ra_serf

will not be built. If you want to build libsvn_ra_serf, please

install serf 1.3.4 or newer.

configure: error: Serf was explicitly enabled but an appropriate version
was not found.

Make sure serf was installed correctly:

dev_at_cardamom:~/wrk/sandbox/svn/serf-1.3.9> cmp libserf-1.so.1.3.0


Manually check if label is in lib:

dev_at_cardamom:~/wrk/sandbox/svn/subversion-1.12.0> strings
/usr/local/lib/libserf-1.so.1.3.0 | grep serf_context_create



From what I can tell from reading the configure script, a test file is
being compiled to see if serf_context_create is in the library it compiles
with. I have not been able to get the script to divulge which lib it is
using yet.

Any help getting svn configure to work with serf would be much appreciated.
