No, that is not necessary when running svk - only when doing
that particular install. SVK is working now, but before I
could complete all of the steps in Gaby's recipe at:

svk was interrupted by Perl exceptions and I had to satisfy
at least 6 more dependencies via cpan. I have just completed
the final checkout from the mirror and everything looks ok.

This svk thing is a real rats nest of Perl dependencies. I
don't understand why these dependencies were not automatically
satisfied during the svk installation procedure. But maybe
because I had so much trouble with installing svn in the
proper way so that svk could talk to it, I somehow managed
to munge that part of the svk install. But if this is the
normal install experience for svk, I certainly wouldn't
recommend it for the inexpérimentée.

Anyway, all's well that ends well... Well almost. It turns out
that during the 'svk sync /mirror/axiom' the download from
SourceForge failed about at least 6 times and had to be
manually restarted. That did not happen to be before while
working on the server. But at least it
restarted properly without irrecoverably locking any files
or anything.

End result: I still have serious doubts about svn and svk.
