Since that box will never run anything even remotely related to X, I
don't know if it would have the same problems. However, my 5.2.1 box has
built koffice with wv2 support just fine.

Interestingly enough, the whole process -- SWIG included -- works fine
if I deinstall PHP. Oh well. With PLP (hopefully :) ) soon to be in the
ports tree, that won't be that big of a deal, though I'd like to see it
work for those with PHP. Just to make sure that it's not my setup, can
someone who's been watching this thread try to replicate the situation?
A summary:

Install lang/php4 , www/apache2 , www/mod_perl2, lang/perl5.8. Try to
install devel/subversion with these options:

For me, the build breaks first with devel/swig-13 with a libphp4 error.
I fixed that (read: removed any trace of PHP from the makefile), and 
then it died elsewhere in the Subversion build process with some 
strange errors.

See above.

pejorative meaning "stupid and unsophisticated".  -- Ken Thompson
