Thanks for response; I thought nobody was going to respond.

I had successfully built subversion for FreeBSD 9.1_STABLE, subsequently upgraded to 9.2 postrelease.

I also built devel/subversion successfully from pkgsrc on NetBSD-current amd64.

So I looked at the options available and selected, and I was going to try again with BDB dropped.

You typed DBD, I assume you meant BDB but mistyped.

Then I won't have to boot the NetBSD-current amd64 16 GB USB stick every time I want to update the src (stable-10 and HEAD), ports and doc trees.
