That is true. But in section A there is only written:
For those of you who still wish to build from source, Subversion
follows the Unix convention of "./configure && make", but it has
a number of dependencies.
If you then only do a quick check for the dependencies, you will be
caught by surprise. When you already build a few times like this, you
do not expect this to happen. It is a minor, but could be easily
amended. I found it by looking what is in the directory, not by
rereading the INSTALL file.
