 Can't exec "svn": Argument list too long at
        /home/sven/src/twiki/twiki/trunk/core/lib//TWiki/Contrib/Build.pm line 625 (#1)
    (W exec) A system(), exec(), or piped open call could not execute the
    named program for the indicated reason.  Typical reasons include: the
    permissions were wrong on the file, the file wasn't found in
    $ENV{PATH}, the executable in question was compiled for another
    architecture, or the #! line in a script points to an interpreter that
    can't be run for similar reasons.  (Or maybe your system doesn't support
    #! at all.)

ok, so the length of the path isn't helping, but :/

if I copy the Contrib to /tmp/t it gets past that - softlinking doesn't as BuildContrib seems to work out and use the true path.

I've reduced it to doing the svn info in 1000 file batches - helps in my test system, and isn't too much slower.
