I'm trying to compile Subversion-1.9.7 with the serf dependency on a redhad linux.
It complains about serf not being found:
configure: serf library configuration via pkg-config checking for serf-2 library... no checking for serf-1 library... no configure: serf library configuration via prefix checking was serf enabled... no An appropriate version of serf could not be found, so libsvn_ra_serf will not be built. If you want to build libsvn_ra_serf, please install serf 1.3.4 or newer. configure: error: Serf was explicitly enabled but an appropriate version was not found.
I installed serf using instructions from http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/blfs/view/cvs/basicnet/serf.html.
Oddly, although I'm compiling serf-1.3.9 it produces libserf-1.so.1.3.0. Why is it 1.3.0? and is it the cause of the issue?
This is the compiled and installed serf lib:
