I'm going to mention one thing that I ran into when first using sv
checkout.  I believe it's obvious to those familiar with svn, but not
necessarily to those of us who don't use it.

If doing svn co whatever /usr/src, one should first rm -rf /usr/src if it
exists.  That is, if you do a basic install, include /usr/src, then do svn
co, it may cause problems.
