OK, here's another question -- I've installed subversion and checked  
out a working copy of the xetex archive: How do I go about installing  
xetex from it: Do I do the install directly from the working copy, or  
do  I make a copy of the working directory and perform the upgrade  
from there thus keeping the working copy clean?
