Been looking at Subversion. Looks like a very interesting project. I have yet to see it compile on my Debian box, but I'm working on it. (I know subversion isn't in a releaseable state, but I just have to play with it)

The first problem (other than making sure I got all the needed development packages) is that Debians BerkeleyDB version 3 should be linked with -ldb3 and not -ldb. With some hacking in ./configure I got it configured and could start the make process. Which failed still with linking problems with BerkeleyDB.

I thought this was the kind of problems autoconf was meant to solve without to much hacking for the programmer.

I know I shouldn't be hacking directly in ./configure. But I have absolutly no knowledge about the inner workings of autoconf. But now I know what the problems was I will try to solve it the right way.

I must convince someone in SSLUG to give a talk about auto{conf,make,...}.

btw: mozilla0.9 is quite good
