There's no need to change the variable name here.

Ditto. The issue is to have the abs_srcdir/abs_builddir variables
available in svn-config itself.

The trick with --link-libtool is that you can specify just the
SVN libraries and all of the other libraries are dragged in. (i.e.
you don't need to add the dependencies yourself). So, I think it
would be easier to get the --link-libtool option working than the
--link-ld option. --link-libtool should just print out:

/path/svn/lib/libsvn_client-1.la /path/svn/lib/libsvn_wc-1.la ...

When svn-config isn't installed, it can print:

$(abs_builddir)/subversion/libsvn_client/libsvn_client-1.la \
$(abs_builddir)/subversion/libsvn_wc/libsvn_wc-1.la ...

Hope that makes more sense. With --link-libtool, we can sidestep
the location of the dependencies. With --link-ld, we have to manage
them ourselves and because they can shift when they are in-tree, it
isn't as easy as it looks at first glance. -- justin
