Compiling on Windows is of course not nearly as easy as it is on
Linux or Mac OS X, but fortunately it's not required either since
binaries are provided. If you don't like the registration requirement
of CollabNet(a requirement they're free to impose -- anyone can offer
Subversion binaries for download with any restrictions they want),
then get binaries from somewhere else, for example from the
Subversion web site at


Just click the link titled "Apache 2.0" or "Apache 2.2" next to
"Tigris.org" instead of clicking "CollabNet".
