    Description

      The Python binding failed to build with an error:

      Deprecated command line option: -classic. This option is no longer supported.

       After fixing this (by removing -classic from build.conf), a lot of new errors like below appeared:

      subversion/bindings/swig/python/svn_client.c:6201:128: error: ‘svn_argnum_swig_obj’ undeclared (first use in this function); did you mean ‘svn_argnum_obj1’?

      After looking up the changelog of SWIG 4, it appears fastunpack becomes default so I added -nofastunpack to get around this.

      Next error is inside Ruby bindings:

      subversion/bindings/swig/ruby/svn_client.c:1605:21: error: ‘SWIG_POINTER_NO_NULL’ undeclared (first use in this function); did you mean ‘SWIG_POINTER_OWN’?

      Looks like the vendored proxy/*.swg files are outdated. I removed some and get passed this one.

      Finally it built fine, but I am stuck at the test suite now. The python binding failed to import correctly:

      File "/home/felix/projects/arch/packages/subversion/trunk/src/subversion-1.12.0/subversion/bindings/swig/python/libsvn/core.py", line 32, in _swig_setattr_nondynamic
      method = class_type._swig_setmethods_.get(name, None)
      AttributeError: type object 'svn_auth_cred_simple_t' has no attribute '_swig_setmethods_'

      Please let me know how to proceed, thanks!
