The tools in question seem very specific to perl's perforce repository.

Take a look at the readme,

http://search.cpan.org/src/ANDK/Perl-Repository-APC-1.059/README

and if you look at the scripts themselves, they include quite a few work
arounds for things like specific files in their repository that were
checked in as binary, and stuff like that. it works, but it's not
really a generic perforce to svn converter.
