That is interesting. Does it build the Ruby bindings that way as well?
The instructions must be outdated as they still say you must install
SWIG and the configure script looks for a SWIG installation. Confusing
to say the least. What made you try to install them without following
the directions? I am not speaking of BLFS directions, I am speaking about
the directions given in the Subversion tarball. It must have been accidental.
