Yes, but make sure you take the ones for OO2, not OO1.x!

If MS complains, we'll remove it.

I think that last step isn't really needed. Ok, I admit the build script
  seems broken. But if you build it a second time, SubWCRev will find
those dll's because they get copied there after the build.

You will actually see always a lot of errors.
- we build Subversion twice (all libs), but once without network/BDB
support. In that build, you'll get linker errors a lot - but we only use
those libs from that build which build successfully.
- while generating the docs, there are also a lot of 'errors', but you
can ignore those - the pdf will get built anyway.

The different filesize of the msi is completely expected:
We build TSVN with debug information. And that debug information also
contains the full paths to the sourcefiles. So if you don't have the
*exact* same paths as I do, you'll get slightly different filesizes.

I sometimes get that one too. If you get it all the time, you must
install language support for eastern languages (you might need to insert
the XP installation CD, so have it ready).

That difference is due to different paths where our sources live - see
my comments above.

hhc crashes quite often. I learned to live with it :)

See my comments above about this.
