The svn errors are irrelevant. It is the result of some leftover developer code that lets us know exactly which checkout version we are using (we use SVN for version control), all it means is that you won’t get the version number stamp. Don’t bother with svn, you don’t have an SVN copy of the code anyway, so it will still fail even if you do install SVN.
I will email you a copy of sasa.cc later today. It is reasonably likely to have an error or two (because it will have been ported from current developer trunk to an old version), but we can iron those out with little difficulty.
