Dale - I installed a fresh copy of OpenBSD with all the sets and the 
dependencies and the latest SVN build works fine.

I installed Firefox first, which took care of most of them such as gtk.  
I also installed python (and made link from /usr/local/bin/python -> 
/usr/local/bin/python2.4), autoconf, automake, pkgconfig and gmake from 
the packages.  I did setenv AUTOCONF_VERSION 2.59 and AUTOMAKE_VERSION 
1.9 as instructed.  Then ran the usual autogen.sh, configure, gmake.  
Let me know if the latest SVN still causes problems for you.
