Description KOMATSU Seiji 2015-08-23 14:00:54 EDT
Description of problem:
Subversion 1.8.14 cannot be built on CentOS7.1, may be also on RHEL7.1.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

cf29fd809927727300a083f7d14028b52258a190  subversion-1.8.14.tar.gz
0dbb29c71c4385d1000c091f14475106784daceb  sqlite-amalgamation-3081101.zip

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. curl -LO http://archive.apache.org/dist/subversion/subversion-1.8.14.tar.gz
2. tar xf subversion-1.8.14.tar.gz
3. cd subversion-1.8.14
4. curl -LO https://www.sqlite.org/2015/sqlite-amalgamation-3081101.zip
5. unzip sqlite-amalgamation-3081101.zip
6. ./configure --prefix=/opt/subversion-1.8.14 --with-apxs=/usr/bin/apxs --with-sqlite=sqlite-amalgamation-3081101/sqlite3.c

Actual results:

Result1 (configure failure):


Result2 (configure patched):

patch: https://gist.github.com/comutt/38dc6b5add6d7c62d3d9

with configure option `--enable-broken-httpd-auth`, build will success.
but for now this is not valid solution because httpd still has bug.

Expected results:

1. Build success with configure patch and `--enable-broken-httpd-auth` option, and httpd does not contains known bugs.

Additional info:

d4bdf1dacb117a8ef3588a4fcbeedaef748fdd44  httpd-2.4.6-31.el7.centos.src.rpm

SRPM of httpd for CentOS7 does not include required security patches for httpd.

Thanks for contacting us.  For tracking the addition of the API required in CVE-2015-3185, please see bug 1256063, or contact Red Hat Support if this issue affects you in production.

For the issue with the Subversion configure test and the back-ported API, that is not an issue in RHEL httpd.  There is an upstream discussion here, a future SVN release may resolve this:
