[Openmcl-devel] Failing to build 64 bit ccl/x86

Thank you.

My further investigation was just concluding that svn was not helping  
me. I had not appreciated the full consequences of 'svn up' not  
replacing locally modified files. (I don't think they were  
'conflicted' - they only listed 'M' as their status).

Somehow, my dx86cl64 image had become borked, in ways the dx86cl image  
had not. When I 'reverted' the files dx86cl64 and dx86cl64.image I  
could then build and update them.

Given that each attempt I make appears to fail and require manual  
intervention with svn, I am rapidly concluding that the only way to  
get an automated clean build of ccl is to throw away the subversion  
repository as a first step.

Do any svn gurus know a *reliable* incantation that means my  
repository is an exact replica of the tip of the remote repository?
