5) delete the generated webhelp dir
6) svn update to get the committed webhelp dir from the repository

Without 5&6 svn up will complain that there is a dir called 'webhelp' which it
can't retrieve from the repository because a local unversioned dir is in its
way. You could of course choose to change either the name of the generated or
versioned dir to avoid that - there is however a feature/bug in svn_load_dirs
that makes it refuse to work when it thinks the user accidentally specified a
local dir instead of a remote one that might be activated. Note also that the
script requires manual intervention in some cases, i.e. is interactive - not
a desirable feature for fully automatic builds.
