Sorry, the free mail service I'm using upgraded their mail server and
shut down service on the weekend. Therefore I'm not able to receive
any mails until now.

Actually, compiling subversion book myself is fine with me. I'm doing
Traditional Chinese translation (yap, I'm still doing it), and
compiling it is no difficult to me.

The reason why I'm asking it is I tried to update my devel/subversion
port (used on FreeBSD), and it complained about no taget for compiled
book.html. If the port has to compile book.html, it must depend
libxslt and other depedencies.

But you are right, Sussman, that the book is always online. I fogot
the online version of svnbook. Maybe just another fetch command will
solve this problem for good. :)
