> you want to 'svn up'.  this will grab from the place you grabbed from originally.  to put yourself at ease, you can do an 'svn info' and it should tell you what url you are pointing to.  it should be fixes.  if it isn't, then yes, you want to remove what you have and re-checkout.

And if you're not following the -commits list (which will explicitly 
tell you when to do so), you might want to do a "make distclean" before 
rebuilding and then configure, make, make install (with appropriate 
arguments).  (The list would tell you when you need to do a "make clean" 
or when you need to do a "make distclean".  If you just do it every 
time, you're covered.)

And, if you use ccache, the "make distclean" has little impact on 
compile time.  Even if you don't use ccache, "make distclean" can result 
in significant time savings for you and the devs (i.e. not wasting time 
debugging a compile failure or runtime "bug" that's caused by not 
running "make clean" when necessary or not having to follow -commits 
closely to find when to "make clean") at the expense of a bit of 
processor time.  If you schedule the compile time while you do something 
else--even while you sleep--everyone wins and the time's not an issue.
