Thanks. I had forgotten about the bzr stuff. The bzr site seems to
believe that all Linux distros have bazaar, but Slackware doesn't.
However I managed to download it install it and use it. Currently my
Inkscape download via bzr is compiling. I had to run autogen.sh, then
./configure, then make. Hope it makes it to the end without failure.
The reference to the svn version of Inkscape should be removed from
the web pages. At this point it is just a blind alley.
There was cvs, then svn, then bzr. And Scribus uses cmake instead of
make. It would be nice if we could stabilize the repository systems
and concentrate on improving applications instead, but someone is
always reinventing the wheel.
