CMake is really versatile and great for cross compiling. I see that
some repos use it (like libapr) but not subversion itself. If SVN +
all apache dependencies used CMake and it all tied together, then
cross compilation is a non-issue. The Android NDK comes with a CMake
toolchain file for this purpose. That's the only reasonable solution I
see at this point. But it means that Subversion and potentially more
dependencies need to implement CMake scripts.
