Feel free. But it needs a good edit first. :)

Also note most of the instructions originally came from an old email to this
list. (I can't find it at the moment, but I think it was by McClain Looney).
I just fleshed them out with explanations.

One thing I did forget to mention, is that even after building and installing
javahl, the sun's java 1.4 does not find the shared library
(in /usr/lib/svnjavahl-1.so.0.0.0). (Some versions of sun's jre don't seem
to use the system library paths).

I worked around this problem by creating symlinks
in /usr/lib/j2sdk1.4-sun/jre/lib/i386/ from /usr/lib/libsvnjavahl-1.s*

(as root)
# ln -s /usr/lib/libsvnjavahl-1.s* /usr/lib/j2sdk1.4-sun/jre/lib/i386/

This only needs to be done once, not every time you upgrade subversion.

Note that this is a hack, rather than a proper solution.
The symlinks won't be cleaned up when dpkg removes subversion.
I'm not sure what problems dangling symlinks here might cause.
