I probably should have looking into that a bit more, I did see traffic
going around dealing with problems building subversion in a chroot,

However, we really shouldn't be using svnmerge anymore- "svn merge"
has been a first class operation in subversion since 1.5.0, and
svnmerge was simply a pre-1.5 script to perform that action. Does
anyone want to take a crack at updating these?
