This is a known problem. Max had checked in a solution which unfortunately left
the Perl bindings in a state where they were explicitely linked to the build
directory (and would fail when you blew that away). So that was reverted. Your
solution works for you, but it isn't the right way long term (since it would
prevent linking against other installed libraries which we need). The short
answer is that, for now, you must install the new Subversion libraries before
attempting to build the Perl bindings.

Once 1.3.0 is out, I plan on taking a good long look at how the Perl bindings
are constructed and try and rework the Makefile.PL. I think if we use an
appropriate LD_LIBRARY_PATH instead of LD_RUN_PATH, we can get where we are
going (linking against the new libraries for testing but loading the system
libraries for running).
