We have succeeded in building it for msysGit, with the same intention of 
getting SVN's Perl binding to run.

The biggest PITA was not even getting Perl to run, but the Subversion 

You might get inspiration from looking at the script we used to download 
and build all required packages:


(It is the script "release.sh", and getting it to run should be as easy as 
downloading the snapshot 
unpacking it and calling msys.bat, then "cd /src/perl && sh release.sh", 
although the last steps will fail, since you do not have Git installed)
