Thanks to your helpful guidance I have now got as far as installing all
the necessary bits and reproducing the problem. (Eclipse quits saying
"JVM terminated" when I try to do "Show History" on say the COMMITTERS
file in my Subversion trunk WC.)

Now I need to build the JavaHL bindings in my own Subversion build so I
can try the fix.

I have had trouble in the past trying to build JavaHL here on SUSE SLED
10. I hope to try tomorrow.
