Thanks both for the quick answer.

Answering Noah Slater, I've read it in the (non-oficial) Gentoo
ebuild, first from  and
now maintained in a couchdb overlay at .

As Jan Lehnardt says: svn2cl was needed to build CouchDB. Because
Gentoo/Linux distribution builds (compile) everything before
installing, this could be the reason that svn2cl is needed by Gentoo.

Can you confirm that svn2cl is only needed for compiling older version
0.8.1 and 0.8.0?
This compilation dependency is present in new versions (0.9)?

I'm going to update this overlay with the new top level address and
with the new version 0.9 when it comes out.
