I installed subversion from source. I forgot the --with-ssl option when running ./configure. Now, I reconfigured and reinstalled, but the binary doesn't seem to change.

How do I uninstall and reinstall with new configuration?

You have reconfigured, reinstall but did you recompile first, before reinstalling? Reconfiguring alone isn't enough.

make install

In other words, ./configure --..., then make, then make install – VonC May 8 '11 at 11:10
