I really hate to agree with such an inappropriate note, but I have to
admit that I felt the same way when I went through this (until I got it
done). The instructions really aren't that bad, but man are there ever a
lot of little extra pieces you have to find, download, and get working!
In some cases the libs for the libs need libs. Because of this you
eventually find yourself nested three deep in instructions for
instructions for instructions. %-P

I'm sure all the libs are useful, and it makes sense to use their
downloads and their instructions rather than try to include them and
rewrite the instructions yourself (and have to redo them every time they
change). So I don't know the solution to this issue. Most folks should
probably just download a prebuilt binary client and not have to worry
about it. Perhaps those of us who want to code against the subversion
API should be smart enough to figure out how to do this, but it sure was
a pain.
