Subject Issue #4588, part 3: Build issues on CentOS
Date Sun, 23 Aug 2015 21:27:31 GMT
The latest relevant section taken from that issue:

Secondly, I would like to install Subversion 1.9 to try it out, but I'm running

which indicates my frustration.
Is there anything we can reasonably do about it?
