Those pesky db/log.000000000... files

Hello Developers,

   I have downloaded configured and installed the latest svn (version0.16.1)
and love it. I plan to use it for some websites I am maintaining for
customers.

 I would like to know how to stop it from creating those 7 approx. 1M byte
each log files in subdir db relative to the repository. Are those log
files required
to be present for the proper operation of 'svn'?

I have tried building svn both ways, with maintainer mode enabled and with
it not enabled (via the configure script), and I still get an svn that
wants to
create those huge logfiles, about 7M worth per transaction.

It would be nice if I could run a wrapper script around my svn scripts
to delete
them, or, better yet, is there an option or a way to not generate them?

I have built some test repositories and purposely archived a binary
compressed
tar file to the test repository, picked a byte and flipped it (XOR with
0xff) and
updated the rep with the changed file.

If I discount the creation of the log files I can see that this version
control system
is amazingly effecient in storage usage.

Your assistance or a pointer for more info would be appreciated
