Sure thing.  I'll try to write up a giant setup script for the whole
deal.  Note that my patch is mostly important in cross-realm cases which
are more likely to occur in GSSAPI authentication cases rather than the
ldap cases, so it'll be a big setup script (build two test Kerberos
realms, configure cross-realm principals, configure svnserve, etc.).
It'll be my shell scripting exercise for the week and it'll stand as
permanent documentation for how to get GSSAPI+svnserve working.  :)
