svnpubsub dependcy problem building RPM's for Subverssion 1.8.0

I'm working with SRPM packaging of Subversion 1.8.0. So far so good,
but there's an RPM dependency problem for the svnpubsub scripts.

The issue is that there's a stack of init scripts stoed in
tools-doc/server-side/svnpubsub/rc.d That's all well and good, they're
for different operating systems and use things like
/usr/local/bin/pyghon, /usr/bin/bash, and other tools for different
operating systems.

The problem is that, up to now, I've just been grabbing the contents
of "tools-doc" as documents. And because those are *executable*
scripts, they get parsed for dependencies. So the "subversion-tools"
package winds up depending on /usr/local/bin/python, /usr/bin/bash,
and the like.

So, the fix for RPM is easy. From my subversion.spec file:

# Disable binary scripts in svnpubsub, or they get parsed for
# dependencies on /usr/local/bin/python, /usr/bin/bash, and
# package dependencies for other operating systems
find tools/server-side/svnpubsub/rc.d -type l -exec rm -f {} \;
find tools/server-side/svnpubsub/rc.d -type f | sort | while read name; do
    chmod a-x "$name"

There's also an issue with inconsistent use of ;/usr/local/bin/pyton,
or "/usr/bin/env python", fo the svnpubsub *.py scripts:

# Canonicalize path to python, correctly
for name in tools/server-side/svnpubsub/*.py; do
    sed -i 's|#!/usr/local/bin/python|#!/usr/bin/env python|g' $name

The resulting changes are non-critical, but do clean up RPM building,
and I'd appreciate them.
