rebuild world

I have 2 options in the "SVN interface" section under

JavaHL (JNI) Not Available
SVNKit (Pure Java) SVNKit v1.2..0.4710

Generally, the JavaHL option works better for me (it is faster), however as
you can see it's "Not Available"  So I use the SVNKit option, which I
believe is an optional plugin under the subclipse plugin.  If you look at
the update site there is an "SVNKit
Adapter BETA (optional)" option.  Seems to work, but it's slow for me.

Hope that helps, and sorry for the eclipse clutter in the macports list.
