Install swig 1.3.11
Install python 2.2 (Probably 1.5.2+ would work fine, i just happen to have
2.2, and haven't tried older versions)
Install rcsparse from viewcvs (this is the part that sucks right now)
into either the same dir as cvs2svn.py, or in the python module path so
that "import rcsparse" picks it up properly.

That should do it.
