Ah, I see.  I assumed you were just doing a checkout and then tarring
that up without make dist.  Benefit there is that someone who downloads
a snapshot can keep it up-to-date with 'svn' rather than having to pull
a new tree every time they want to update.

Then again, I suppose if they wanted to/were able to use svn in the
first place, they'd just do that...

But no, I can't really think of another way to do that.  You could
install all the required deps in --prefix=~/xfce4-svn/, but that would
take a bit of work to set up.  You would only need to do it once,
though: there's really no need to keep it up-to-date unless you really
want to.  Ah well.

If you're having bandwidth issues, I can run it on my machine and do the
nightly upload if you want.
