I was having some issues with upgrading ports on FreeBSD for a long
while.. and figured out the issue was with svnup.

So svnup doesn't trim *anything* by default.. you have to add:


To have *any* trimming done.  So even any old patches located in files/
are not trimmed, which was causing everything from pkgconf to perl to fail.

I now have that variable set just in the ports section of the
svnup.conf, although it could also be in the main section.
