repository update problems

	Thanks for all this info Daniel! I spoke too soon when I posted saying 
nuking my sources and re-checking them out solved my problem... I'm 
still getting SSL errors when I try updating (only the checkout 
operation succeeded, update fails with the exact same error already 
reported, consistently in my case... which confuses me: why did 
checkout succeed if it also uses SSL?)

	I'm running a fully up to date panther (all security updates applied) 
but I'm using MacPorts' OpenSSL 0.9.8b:

$[juan at PowerBook(ttyp3): ~](13/0 0,0)-> which svn

$[juan at PowerBook(ttyp3): ~](14/0,0)-> otool -L $(which svn) | grep ssl
         /opt/local/lib/libssl.0.9.8.dylib (compatibility version 0.9.8, 
current version 0.9.8)

$[juan at PowerBook(ttyp3): ~](15/0 0,0)-> port installed openssl
The following ports are currently installed:
   openssl @0.9.8b_0

	I'll try upgrading to the c release to see if it fixes the problem... 
or not. 'll report back in either case (I'll also forward this info to 
macosforge admins for the record).
