I'm still hoping for someone to tell me how to get along with the
Makefile generating thing, so that I can make a proper patch. :-)
It doesn't really make sense to install a script that tests if it's
installed. When we're installing it, we _know_ it's going to be
installed when run from that location, so we should install a script
that _knows_ that it's installed.

Since everthing in the Makefile relating to svn-config is generated by
the strange Python-thingy though, I don't know where to add code which
injects this knowledge into the script as it is installed (a very
simple sed command will do the trick, if I just can figure out where
to put it).
