The .zip variant is meant exactly for building on Windows. It does not
contain the Unix build scripts, and most files have CR/LF line endings
instead of just LF. Once upon a time, the Visual Studio editor didn't
know what to do with files with LF line endings.

I build Subversion regularly on OSX, and I also run an automated build
box on a Mac Mini. I do use Homebrew to get a new-enough openssl, scons
(for Serf), atoconf etc. (not on the buildslave, where I build the
dependencies from scratch). The system APR, APR-Util and SQLite on El
Cap are just fine, and you do not need Berkeley DB; in fact, I'd
recommend not to build the BDB bits at all.
