Comment (by dnicholson at linuxfromscratch.org):

 A month late, but I think this is a good choice. I've been running
 subversion-1.3.2 client and server at home for quite a while. And I the
 Python and perl SWIG bindings against swig-1.3.25. I even got to use of
 the svn perl bindings when I imported an svn repository into a git

 I did have an issue building the perl bindings resulting in this error:

 cc -c  -I/usr/include/apache2   -I/usr/include/apache2
 -I../../../../../subversion/include  -
 I../../../../../subversion/bindings/swig -g -O2 -pipe -fno-strict-aliasing
 laration-after-statement -D_LARGEFILE_SOURCE -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64 -O2
 ION=\"\" -DXS_VERSION=\"\" -fpic "-I/usr/lib/perl5/5.8.8/i686-linux/CORE"
 In file included from /usr/include/apache2/apr_pools.h:37,
                  from ../../../../../subversion/include/svn_time.h:25,
                  from core.c:1094:
 /usr/include/apache2/apr.h:270: error: syntax error before 'apr_off_t'

 The problem is that this needs to be built with -DGNU_SOURCE, which are in
 the CPPFLAGS which configure gets from apr. Unfortunately, the CPPFLAGS
 are not used in the perl bindings Makefile where they're needed. Fixed
 with this command before configure:

 sed -i.bak 's/@SVN_APR_INCLUDES@/& @CPPFLAGS@/' \
