Re: Revision # theorhetical upper limit

Properly written makefiles that always use paths relative to the current
directory should be fine. If the makefiles aren't written that way then
problems can occur because a Subversion branch is simply a copy (or
apparently so) to another location. For example, most repositories are
laid out like:

/project/trunk/...
/project/branches/mybranch/...

where ... implies the basic content of the project. Since the branches
are stored in directories of a different name and a different depth in
the file system, an ill-written makefile could be given some trouble.
