Hi Rupert,

in your subversion update several things are broken. I noticed you bumped the
version and silenced checkpkg:

This is unfortunate as the checkpkg errors would have lead you to the issue.
Properly updating subversion is difficult, after investigating for the last two
days these are the prerequisites I have identified:

- location of the subversion config changed back from /opt/csw/etc/subversion to
  /etc/subversion leading to the buildfarm config to be not pulled in.
- libtool needs to be updated to honour gcc 4.9.x tags
- this will probably help in allowing cc/gcc mixture of subversion and the
  foreign function apis
- python module needs to be modulated for 2.6/2.7/3.x

So, please, do not just override the checkpkg errors without investigation or
we will have broken packages.
