This is already a few weeks old, I can't remember the details. In CMake (at 
least cmake cvs) there is already a module for subversion. I think the only 
problem was that it didn't set the lanugage to C before calling svn, so the 
output was translated and not recognized by the cmake module.
This is now fixed both in kdepim/cmake/modules/FindKdeSubversion.cmake as well 
as FindSubversion.cmake coming with cmake.
I think we should switch to FindSubversion.cmake coming with cmake (and adding 
a copy of that to an appropriate place). I'm not sure we need to keep 
FindKdeSubversion.cmake in kdepim, because, do we promise to keep source 
compatibility for all KDE svn modules ?
If not, maybe we just should install the cmake modules only in library svn 
modules, like kdelibs, and kdepimlibs ?
