There are a few points to take care for but is basis you
1) get the sources and unpack them

2) get the sources of the dependencies and unpack them too
in the *same* root directory getting something like this:

Map van ...your\SVN\root\directory\subversion
09-06-2008 16:49 <DIR> apr
09-06-2008 17:25 <DIR> apr-iconv
09-06-2008 17:28 <DIR> apr-util
05-06-2008 12:24 <DIR> build
27-05-2008 13:29 <DIR> contrib
27-05-2008 13:29 <DIR> doc
07-05-2008 10:21 115 HACKING
07-05-2008 10:21 66.206 INSTALL
09-06-2008 17:43 <DIR> neon
05-06-2008 12:23 <DIR> notes
27-05-2008 13:27 <DIR> packages
07-05-2008 10:21 2.326 README
09-06-2008 17:40 <DIR> Release
05-06-2008 16:10 <DIR> serf
05-06-2008 12:24 <DIR> subversion
09-06-2008 17:57 <DIR> tools
... etc. (not a complete listing)

Note the dependencies directories/files are in the same
root directory as the subversion source directories/files.

Then follow the directions in the file INSTALL *to the letter*!
This will give you enough information to configure the whole lot
to your liking but does not tell you how to build and deploy it.

3) Have a close look in ...\subersion\tools\buildbot, to be more
specific, read ...\subersion\tools\buildbot\slaves\README
This will tell you how to build, the file INSTALL does not
tell you anything about the existence of buildbot.
Buildbot is not an easy tool to install!

As an alternative you can create your own batch file to drive
the build process (as I have done). Get inspiration from the
directory "...\subversion\tools\buildbot\slaves\win32-xp VS2005"
for instance. This way is as hard as using buildbot.

Hope you can do something with this. Please keep me informed
of your progress since I've also some lose ends in the build
and deploy process that are unsolved.
