Karl, what about the fact that 'make install' tries to finish by
running 'svnversion' on the source tree? For people bootstrapping
from a tarball, the last thing they see is a huge error from this
command, because they don't in fact have a working copy. Then newbies
aren't sure if 'make install' actually worked!

Either 'svnversion' needs to not exit(1) on a non-wc, or 'make check'
needs to not run svnversion if .svn isn't present. I've seen 0.18
tarball users bitten by this already.
