I was looking at client and its got no value add in svn from libsvn.
But I did find the additions for other like delta.

Agreed.

O.K. However I got errors loading the DLLs because the DDLs like
LIBEAY32.DLL are not on my PATH. Simple to fix either by forcing
c:\program files\subversion on to the PATH. Or but putting the DLLs
into libsvn.

This is a question for the INNO world, didn't the svn path get added on
install?
