The list has mostly decided that these platforms are a low priority.
I'm unlikely to put in the work myself.

However, if someone else wants to look into it, the change is fairly
simple: there's this "recovery lock" in the repository library, which
was designed for the specific needs of the BDB back end. It doesn't
really make sense for FSFS, which has no recovery operation and which is
designed to allow completely unlocked read access. So the lock was
added at the wrong layer, but we can't do anything about that. The fix,
then, is to make libsvn_repos not use the recovery lock when the
repository is of type FSFS.
