I can't see why you'd need those special patches' to handle large files; I
have no idea why the gentleman who posted those patches felt there was some
great complex problem to solve.

All you need to do is recompile subversion against some version of apr and
apr-util > 1.0. Subversion ships with apr 0.9 in its own tarball, but
that's only for legacy compatibility reasons. If you rebuild against a
modern apr, large files should be handled just fine. There's no need for
secret renegade patches. :-)
