Breakage in trunk with subversion

the other side of the problem has been already reported by Benjamin 
John. It looks like, when the Makefile checks out the LFS book via SVN, 
the "LFS-BOOK" directory gets modified in undesirable way.

1) Before I upgraded Subversion on the CD, Benjamin John (who, 
apparently, checked the LiveCD Makefiles with SVN-1.4.2) was unable to 
check out the LFS book, because Subversion on the LiveCD complained 
about the new working copy format.

2) After the upgrade, I am unable to do "svn merge" on 
(Debian Sarge, old subversion), because the LFS-BOOK directory gets 
modified by SVN-1.4.2 while downloading the book.

I am currently investigating possible fixes.
