Here's a condensed version of my original proposal:
1. By default, don't install any bindings (because not everyone has
Java, Python, or Perl)
2. If they ask to install the bindings (in the configure script), then
build and install them with the rest of subversion!

As Erik mentioned, this change will make setting up the unit tests
easier, because the binding unit tests will be integrated with the
rest of the test suite. Once we have those automated unit tests up and
running (and e-mailing the svn-breakage list), everyone will know when
the bindings break.
