I managed to get the build working without *too much* pain.
Unfortunately, I'm stuck using RHEL 5.11 on this one machine for the
forseeable future.  Our other machines are running 7.2 and seem to
work better.

Thanks for the tip about Wandisco's offerings.  I didn't think to look
around for builds of old subversion.  I'll keep your tools in mind if
I need to build subversion again in the future.

Thanks again,
Eric Dramstad
