I would love to see this document greatly expanded:

http://svn.collab.net/repos/svn/trunk/subversion/bindings/java/javahl/README

It seems to me that there is a huge number of *nix users of Subclipse that
absolutely cannot figure out how to build JavaHL from source. On Windows,
if you can get the main Subversion build to work, then JavaHL is pretty
easy. There are just a couple of steps to take care of, that could be
described better.

I really want to build an entire JavaHL "site" within the Subclipse web
site. I haven't done so thus far because I do not want to bite off more
than I can chew, and I just do not have the depth of experience on *nix to
cover the issues.

A detailed build from source explanation would be a great start, but the
next thing would be info that is specific to distributions, such as how
can I tweak the Debian package to build and install JavaHL, or the RedHat
RPM's etc... Then there are also other issues such as on Debian, the
JavaHL library will not be found by default, apparently because something
called LD_LIBRARY_PATH is not set.

If some good docs could just be maintained in the Subversion repository, I
would be happy to take ownership of making an end-user friendly web site
with similar info.
