I don't think I have much choice.  It's more likely you'll be waiting
for me. ;-) It's not as trivial as it sounds[0] so I'm sure this
discussion will be done before I'm ready to check anything in. ;-(

This was my first thought but it didn't take long before I decided I had
to think again.  I think it is much too error prone.  Consider figuring
out which .so files are generated/downloaded and which are in svn.
Repeat for dll files, jar files, etc.  Then keep this up to date.  It'd
be a full-time job.

svn export does just the right thing.  It takes only the stuff you get
from svn but without the .svn files.  This seems much less likely to
turn around and bite us.  (Though even this isn't without issues.)


[0] not as trivial as I was expecting that's for sure
