Many thanks for the reply.  I did as you recommended and that got me  
over that obstacle.  Then it happened again.  This time, after also  
doing a deactivate, clean and install on subversion 1.6.5, I watched  
the build long enough to see it complain about my version of ruby  
being too outdated for subversion to use.  When I scrolled back  
(thank goodness for sufficiently big scroll buffers) over the  
previous subversion build failure's output, I noticed that despite it  
also making the same complaint about ruby being too outdated for  
subversion 1.6.5 to use, the build had continued until it crapped out  
about an hour later instead of acknowledging the critical dependency  
on ruby versions and just stopping at that point so it would be  
obvious what the issue was.  I discovered that if I manually built  
the latest version of ruby and then went back to do a deactivate,  
clean and install, subversion 1.6.5 built and installed without  
problems.  FYI.
