No, the tarball should always include 'configure', because our dist.sh
script runs ./autogen.sh. People building the tarball do *not* need
python, autoconf, autoheader, or bison the way developers do, because
we've already done the work for them by running autogen.sh.

I don't know what's wrong with his tarball... perhaps he's using a SunOS
tar program (rather than GNU tar) that truncated the tarball when
unpacking? Because the 0.35.1 tarball definitely has 'configure' in it:

$ wget http://subversion.tigris.org/tarballs/subversion-0.35.1.tar.gz
100%[====================================>] 7,432,251 164.53K/s
$ tar xfz subversion-0.35.1.tar.gz
$ ls subversion-0.35.1/configure
