Michael, There is a problem with the dependency checking in the build. In particular, when the command "python" refers to python3, then some of the svn compilation fails. In particular, some transform-sql.py script fails, resulting in undefined symbols such as STMT_CREATE_SCHEMA in a C-file in subversion/lib_fs_fs, and leading to a failed build. This is causing problems for some of the standard CPAN testers as well. I also had a permission problem with wc-query.h, but this has already been reported on the public bug tracker. Let me know if you need further details, or if this is actually a problem with the subversion build process. My understand was that my CPAN configuration should ensure the correct python version, and not the embedded subversion build process. Thanks, Philip
Hi,

Alien-SVN is just a wrapper around the SVN source code to make its Perl libraries accessible from CPAN.  While we do feed its configure some information, it's only about things like where and what it should install.  We generally leave everything else up to it and prefer to have them fix things upstream.  That and your Perl configuration doesn't know anything about Python.

Since 1.7 is still supported by SVN, I'd recommend you report this to them. First check it isn't already fixed in the latest 1.7.19.  If it is, please let us know and we'll upgrade ASAP.
https://subversion.apache.org/reporting-issues.html

We'll also accept a patch to Alien::SVN to do the checks and pass things into configure, or to fix their configure script, but it all has to be reported upstream.

We also plan to move to 1.8 at some point which is "whenever someone gets around to it".  That could be you!

1.8.11.0 has just been released.  Please give it a try and let us know, it probably has better Python support.
