You can safely ignore all warnings. Mostly the Subversion build throws
many warnings with VS.NET2003. But those aren't warnings when you build
it with VC6 ;)

About the errors: we build Subversion twice, once without any
networking/database libs and once completely. The 'reduced' build then
throws out some errors because e.g. 'svn' depends on those libs. But
since TSVN only needs those libs who actually got built we can ignore
the errors.
Of course, it would be better if we would just compile those libs we
really need, but just calling
devenv subversion_vcnet.sln /useenv /rebuild release /project "__ALL__"
to build everything is much easier ;)

No, you can't just call 'build.bat setup' - that's not implemented
(hint, hint - some volunteers?). But you can just call MakeMsi.bat, that
will only build the installer (of course, it will only succeed once
you've built all binaries which the installer includes).
So since you've successfully ran build.bat, you can simply call
MakeMsi.bat from now on.

One little hint: it might be way easier to create a separate installer
which doesn't install any files or set any registry keys for testing the
UI and other features.
