see issue 1110 for this.

It would be nice to have One Big Download for Subversion, or at least as
close to this as possible. Maybe one download for Subversion itself, and a
Subversion Package for everything else need to build Subversion. Perhaps
the Berkeley DB needs to be excluded (builders would need to download from
Sleepycat) because of their licence.

I disagree. We're not in the package management business. We do bundle
apr, apr-util and neon, but that's because until a short while ago,
their interfaces changed often enough to make it hard to track the exact
version we were compatible with.

Every depencency we have is (or should be) documented in INSTALL. If
something is missing there, please provide a patch. That everything
else to build Subversion might concievably include autoconf, libtool,
GNU diffutils, etc...

By the way, if you're building from the tarball, you don't need libtool,
Python or the auto* tools.
