Wrong, there are no more runtime libraries. Gone.

Well, the reason I stopped is because I don't know enough about the
internal build process of subversion to get SWIG working to the
satisfaction of the devs, but at least from the SWIG side of the fence the
patches I posted work fine. I was getting a bunch of errors about
mixmatched subversion versions and whatnot. Someone with a little more
knowledge subversion needs to step up to the plate, and I am willing to
help them. Or when I get around to it I will probably try and learn more.
