That's how libtool works when using shared libraries. Copying the
shell script somewhere else is not going to work.

In the build directory the file subversion/clients/cmdline/svn is a
libtool generated shell script. When you run the shell script it
creates an executable subversion/clients/cmdline/.libs/lt-svn which is
linked against shared the shared libraries in the build dir. You can
run gdb on this executable if you wish.

There is also an executable subversion/clients/cmdline/.libs/svn.
Don't run this unless you know what you are doing, as it is linked to
libraries in the install directory.

If you install Subversion then the file /install/path/bin/svn will be
an executable linked to libraries in the install dir.
