I think these instructions are ancient, paranoid, and unnecessary.
Maybe we can delete them?

I think they only exist because a long time ago, I used to get burned
by libtool on FreeBSD. Nobody else (on Linux) had my problem.

The problem is that on FreeBSD, the linker would notice that I had
/usr/local/lib in my LD_LIBRARY_PATH, and actually link against the
*installed* svn libraries rather than the ones freshly built in my
source tree. Totally broken, IMO, that LD_LIBRARY_PATH should take
precedence over the --runpath's passed by libtool to ld. As soon as I
blanked my LD_LIBRARY_PATH, the problem went away. And to this day,
this problem has only ever existed on FreeBSD.
