I compiled Subversion 1.2 myself, with java-hl and simply did a 'make
install' and 'make install-javahl' .
Then I used Eclipse 3.1RC1 to install Subclipse via the update site
(http://subclipse.tigiris.org/update). That seemed to go fine.

Then i opened a workspace that was already a working copy and tried
to connect it to Subclipse. When I selected the SVN plugin for the
project, the 'Next' or 'Finish' buttons would not enable. If I
selected CVS and THEN again selected SVN, the 'Next' button remained
highlighted but always went to a CVS config page, even though only
SVN was selected.

So then I went to Window->Preferences... and tried to select the Team-
>Svn prefs and that's when I got this error:
"Unable to create the selected preferences page.

Reason:
  Plug-in org.tigris.subversion.subclipse.ui was unable to load class
org.tigris.subversion.subclipse.ui.preferencse.SVNPreferencesPage."

(The 'Details' button just shows the name of the class again.)

What's up with that? I can't imagine that the Eclipse update
mechanism failed to install the class where it could find to. So I
assume that this must be caused by failing to load the JNI library or
something like that. It would help if the error message was more
useful.

Of course what would REALLY help is that it just bloody worked.. If
Subversions 'make install' and 'make install-javahl' don't actually
install subversion such that it can be used, then those operations
are broken on OS X and should be fixed - if that's the problem I will
go complain to the main subversion list. Otherwise the Subclipse
installation mechanism is somehow broken on OS X and should be
fixed. I didn't get any error messages during installation of any
part of this, and yet it does not work. That is "not good".
