I was trying to make use of some functions from libsvn_client to keep
the RA knowldege in the libsvn_client. In that course, I ended up in a
"circular dependency" in the 'build.conf'.

I had to include the "svn_client.h" in the 'subversion/libsvn_wc/diff.c'
file. So I updated the build.conf file and ran the 'autogen.sh' script,
there by ending up in *error*.

Here is the snip:


Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "./gen-make.py", line 313, in <module>
    main(conf, gentype, skip_depends=skip, other_options=rest.list)
  File "./gen-make.py", line 65, in main
  File "build/generator/gen_make.py", line 375, in write
    files = gen_base._sorted_files(self.graph, area)
  File "build/generator/gen_base.py", line 1148, in _sorted_files
    raise CircularDependencies()


I could not find any other way than teaching libsvn_ra to libsvn_wc
inorder to fetch a file from the repo (like done in the patch). Am very
glad if you have other suggestions :)

Thanks and regards
