r17257 is necessary in order for our SWIG bindings to compile with GCC
2.9x, so I consider it to be an important fix. For this fix alone, I
believe it is worth rolling RC3.
r17279, which removes recursive symbolic links from our build tree, is
also an important fix. r17279 prevents Python from recursively
importing modules, such that "libsvn.core" imports
"libsvn.libsvn.core", and "libsvn.libsvn.core" imports
"libsvn.libsvn.libsvn.core", and so on. Besides this, recursive
symbolic links also break "scp", thus making it difficult for
developers to copy the Subversion build tree from one machine to
another. I think it would be a very good idea to include this fix in
