Rather than wade through the morass of dependencies on Sunfreeware.com, I thought I’d build my own Subversion. It turns out that I had to specify a couple of extra hints in order to use the Sun compiler. Here is my configure line:
./configure ‘–prefix=/usr/local/svn-install/current’ ‘–with-ssl’ ‘–with-openssl=/usr/sfw’ ‘CC=/usr/bin/cc’ ‘CXX=/usr/bin/CC’ ‘LDFLAGS=-R/usr/ucblib -R/usr/sfw/lib’
The Neon library needs ssl; the Serf library needs to know about openssl. And without the Reverse Path entries, libraries in neither of those directories are picked up by the installed binaries.
