[RFC] If bindings are enabled, install them with standard 'install' target

From: David James <james82_at_gmail.com>

If the user chooses to enable a set of bindings using "configure",
then we should compile and install them with the standard targets. For
example, if the user types "./configure --enable-javahl=yes && make &&
make install", then we should include JavaHL with the Subversion

- If users choose to enable JavaHL, then clearly they want to compile
and install it. If they don't want to install JavaHL, then they
wouldn't have enabled it.
- For most programs, the standard "all" and "install" targets compile
and install the entire program. If users wish to enable or disable
specific sections of a program, then they can do so by specifying
different options when they call configure. See the official GNU
coding standards for Makefiles at

If the Subversion team is in favour of my proposal, then I will submit
a patch to implement it. Please let me know :)
