SVN ebuilds exist but they're pretty much all privately maintained these
days due to the fact that they can break fairly easily and I don't think
anyone feels like dealing with support requests.

If you want ebuilds based on svn checkpoints, the overlay from this
thread is probably your best bet:


The thread mentions 0.19 but the overlay has moved on to 0.20. Overlay
can also be managed using layman, which I recommend, and the author
seems to at least make some attempt to ensure the ebuild works for each
checkpoint he releases.
