For me, it's two phases: 1) bootstrap with the current SVN release
including all bundled dependencies; 2) then replace all of the dependencies
and Subversion itself with current copies (i.e. trunk).

So, I have two sets of dirs: subversion-1.2.3 and

Once svn is installed, I don't care about the dependencies as I'll use the
current versions; but to bootstrap, it'd be annoying as I don't really want
to be compile every dependency twice - to fetch the latest release
independently and then upgrade everything again to trunk after I get SVN
installed. *shrug* -- justin
