Hi duglas@

I had the same problem. I completely solved it by rebuilding the 
dependency chain of devel/subversion:

portmaster serf-1.3.9_1 expat-2.2.1 gettext-runtime- 
apr- sqlite3-3.19.3_1 subversion-1.9.6

Probably, only one of them is the culprit, but I haven't testet ;)

Best wishes,
Rainer Hurling
