svn client for n9

svn is available from the Apache subversion repository.

svn depends on the libapr, libaprutils, libexpat and libdb packages; the first two can be found from the Fremantle 1.3 repo extras-devel. Grab them through wget and install them with dpkg -i (in that order).

The libdb has to be taken from the latest harmattan beta repo (provided you have installed the repository package as mentioned in here); sqlite is also needed but a simple

apt-get install sqlite3-dev

is good enough.

Libexpat can be installed as dev package from apt:

apt-get install libexpat1-dev

Afterwards, you can configure svn (with reference to apr / apr-util corrected):

configure --with-apr=/usr/local/apr --with-apr-util=/usr/local/apr

and make should work just like a charm :).
After that, make install and your svn will be installed (by default) under /usr/local/bin
