r17257 is an important fix, which is necessary in order for our SWIG
bindings to compile with GCC 2.95.x.

r17279 is also quite important and is still waiting in STATUS. This
fix removes recursive symbolic links from our build tree, thus solving
two issues:
  1. Python recursively imports modules, such that "libsvn.core"
imports "libsvn.libsvn.core", and "libsvn.libsvn.core" imports
"libsvn.libsvn.libsvn.core", and so on.
  2. The Subversion build tree can't be copied from one machine to
another using "scp", because "scp" enters into an infinite copying
loop when it sees recursive symbolic links.

I think it would be a very good idea to include this fix in 1.3.0.

Cheers,

David
