Actually, svn-config is _not_ a supported part of the Subversion
distribution at all. It's been known to be old, out-of-date, and at least
partially broken since before svn 1.0, IIRC, and the Subversion project's
official tarballs do _not_ install it.

Unfortunately, some packagers seem to have taken it upon themselves to
install it anyway, and some dependent packages have started to use it in
spite of all this.

Which pretty much tells you that any time you see a configure script using
"svn-config", you are in for a less than pleasant experience.
