 The "readonly mountpoint" problem is hard to fix. The subversion client
 programs use a library (libsvn_wc) that controls access to the "working
 copy", and this controls temp file creation, et c. Sadly, that library has
 no overrides for that tempfile creation, and reasonably expects svn
 programs to be able to write under their own .svn directory.
 Someone could petition the authors to change that, but I don't think it is
 worth it.
 I suspect this is not as much of a problem now. If a source file has
 changed, the first make should do the writing of the file
 .svn/tmp/filename.tmp, and any subsequent "sudo make install"s will not
 have to, because the svn "working copy" database will be updated.
 I am now going to close this ticket. It has been open for too long, I have
 hearn no complaints about the version stuff, and I don't care about
 Windows builds and svnversion (for now).
