Confirmed. The problem is that the xerces distribution contains a
*file* called ".svn" at doc/html/resources/.svn and Subversion can't
deal with that because it needs to create a *directory* called ".svn"
there. Delete the .svn file there before adding the xerces directory,
and tell the xerces folks not to put such silly files in their
distribution. :-)
