Subject [PATCH] INSTALL documentation update regarding Perl on Windows
Date Thu, 23 Jul 2015 09:57:10 GMT

as suggested by danielsh and with the input from Bert on IRC following 
is a suggested patch to correct/update the stated Perl-requirements for 
building on Windows in the install-documentation.

The update applies in principle to 1.7, 1.8, 1.9 and trunk.
The old phrasing incorrectly suggested that Perl was required for 
building SVN with any version of Visual Studio on Windows, while it 
actually is only required when building apr-util with BDB-support on VC6 
(as pointed out by Bert) or when building OpenSSL (with any VS version) 
from source.

The attached patch corrects that statement (patch against current trunk).

Correct statement of when Perl is required on Windows.
(patch suggested by danielsh with input taken from Bert)

     updated/corrected I.C.11 Perl 5.8 or newer (Windows only) (OPTIONAL)
