Subject Re: subversion not detecting apr and apr-utils libraries
Date Wed, 07 Mar 2018 16:12:47 GMT

Thanks for the help. I tried using apr-config and the configuration went
well, however, I got the following error doing the make check:

collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status recipe for target 'subversion/libsvn_subr/' failed
make: *** [subversion/libsvn_subr/] Error 1

What should I Do?
