Well you do need some copy of the Mahout distro, whether from SVN or a
tarball. I imagin the latter is actually more common. The instructions

Possible, the locations have been moving about and not sure those
changes are in sync with my brain or the documentation. This sounds
right, and I guess it works? then we should make the directory in SVN.
