the correct procedure for compiling subversion 1.6.2

Not sure if this is the complete way of doing it (I’m not telling you which .deb to install), but it worked for me:

Remove some waste from eventual previous compilations:

$ rm -rf /usr/loca/lib/libsvn*  
$ rm -rf /usr/local/lib/libapr*  
$ rm -rf /usr/local/lib/libexpat*  
$ rm -rf /usr/local/lib/libneon*  

Run autogen

$ ./   

Configure and install (it is important to follow the order)

$ ./configure  
$ make -j external-all  
$ make -j local-all  
$ sudo make install  

That’s it. Hope to have helped someone as usual.
