> you want to 'svn up'. this will grab from the place you grabbed from originally. to put yourself at ease, you can do an 'svn info' and it should tell you what url you are pointing to. it should be fixes. if it isn't, then yes, you want to remove what you have and re-checkout.
And if you're not following the -commits list (which will explicitly
tell you when to do so), you might want to do a "make distclean" before
rebuilding and then configure, make, make install (with appropriate
arguments). (The list would tell you when you need to do a "make clean"
or when you need to do a "make distclean". If you just do it every
time, you're covered.)
And, if you use ccache, the "make distclean" has little impact on
compile time. Even if you don't use ccache, "make distclean" can result
in significant time savings for you and the devs (i.e. not wasting time
debugging a compile failure or runtime "bug" that's caused by not
running "make clean" when necessary or not having to follow -commits
closely to find when to "make clean") at the expense of a bit of
processor time. If you schedule the compile time while you do something
else--even while you sleep--everyone wins and the time's not an issue.
