Good point. Care to provide a patch for INSTALL?
(The thing is, I don't ever see that problem because I have libdb40.dll
in my PATH -- as the install docs suggest.)

This is a FAQ ... Subversion does not provide a complete DAV
implementation yet, only the bits that are necessary for the SVN client
to talk to the SVN server.
