You are receiving this error because Subversion does not support
versioning of device files. It can only do regular files,
directories, and Unix-style symbolic links.

The error message above is quite unclear, however. I've patched it;
I'll commit the improved error message as soon as my patch passes
'make check'. Thanks for the report.
