please try not to write scripts that do a svn CO and wipe the sources 
afterwards. This is a useless waste of resources on the server and your 
machine. You're far better off doing a CO only when the module hasn't 
been extracted as well, and it saves you a tonload (and the server as 
well) of bandwidth

something like this is preferred:

for module in $modules ; do
  if [ ! -d $module ]; then
    cd module
    make distclean
    svn up
    svn co module
  cd module
  autogen + compile
