Subversion 1.5 on Fedora 9

Package subversion-1.4.6-7.x86_64 already installed and latest version
I had hoped (hope is not a strategy) Fedora would have given me svn 1.5 by now. Nope.

To get svn 1.5, rather than ask fedora or google, I just built it myself. I needed to 'yum install neon-devel' and used './configure --with-neon=/usr --with-ssl --with-zlib=/usr/lib' to configure subversion. Otherwise the build/install went fine.

Huzzah!
