I kept an old svnkit version alive for sometime but I gave up when even the old version can't be compiled due to incompatibility with latest subversion-javahl. I can't convince myself that it makes sense to neither work on old svnkit to compile with latest subversion-javahl nor touching anything gradle related. Best approach for me is someone interested to rewrite svnkit buildsystem using something normal(ant, maven, pure make, even autotools).

Or patch OmegaT to use subversion-javahl instead, I wonder if that
would be easier.
