What problem? Also, but I'm not sure, it could be possible that cvs2svn is its
own, separate project - in that case you should rather ask on their

Well, asking about problems with an obsolete version doesn't make sense, but
1.3.0 is pretty recent so I'd stick with that version, in particular since it
comes packaged for your OS. You avoid all the problems building Subversion,
for example...

FYI, those .la files are textfiles that describe where a library expects to be
installed, what other libs it depends on etc. The warning means that the
library was moved to a different place than the one it expected to be,
possibly causing it to not function or not function properly.

Lastly, you can install Subversion from source without any root privileges at
all, the only thing you need is to pass e.g. '--prefix ~/svn-install' to
configure and adapt a few things like PATH and LD_LIBRARY_PATH. This helps
keeping this install from affecting other stuff on the system. In fact that
is a feature of autotools, so every program that comes with a configure
script should be installable like that.
