Winrar has a shell extension part, but it only uses a context menu
handler. Those are loaded when the shell shows the context menu.
But the overlays TSVN uses are only loaded when the shell starts up
(which is why the installation process requires a reboot).
Sure, if you think it's enough to just have the context menu then you
might be able to use it with your U3 stick, but you definitely won't get
the overlays (unless you kill all explorer processes and then start the
explorer again to get the desktop and taskbar back).

There's a build.txt file - please read it.
btw: if you don't recognize c/c++ code, then you won't be able to do
this yourself.
