 From talking to Pierre earlier, this was because there is likely to be 
other crap in the truck (e.g. packages) so a plain diff between the two 
directories is not good.

But could we just diff each of the "${source[@]} $install" files 
individually?  We could do this as we loop to check all source files are 
present in SVN.
