Problems with svncpp, what to do?

Matt told me today that subversion support doesn't build for him. The
reason is that he's using svncpp (rapidsvn C++ client lib) 0.9.6, while
I used 0.9.4 while working on svn support. I also had that version
installed until today (did an upgrade). Apparently the rapidsvn devs
don't have any binary compatibility - or even source compat - policy and
simply reworked large parts of the API.
I'm not sure what to do now, unfortunately there's no way to do a
version check (as far as I can see), because they didn't feel like
increasing the SOVERSION of the library and there's also no header with
version information. 0.9.6 is relatively new, so I don't want to
introduce a dependency on it and thus keep everybody else out...
If you learn one useless thing every day, in a single year you'll learn
365 useless things.
