Which package? There is no official Cygwin package yet.

Should do, I've been using built-from-source subversion on Cygwin for a
while. Binary/UNIX mode and no problems.

There is no current cygwin package maintainer, because there is no current
Cygwin package. In any case, Cygwin policy is that packaging problems should
be addressed on the cygwin-apps mailing list, *not* direct to the individual
package maintainer.
