This should create a working copy directory called subversion in the
current directory. Did you cd into that directory?

Did you run any other commands? Any failed/interrupted checkouts? I
assume ac-helpers was a file, what did it contain? If you don't know
what ac-helpers contained what about one of the other files that
causes the "Obstructed update" error.

What does 'svn status' show?
