On my Debian system, I did "svn revert", "svn up", "bootstrap", "toolbox 
--update-includes" and I get nasty errors like this :

root at LinUx4:~/programs/videolan# ./bootstrap
Copying file intl/textdomain.c
Copying file autotools/mkinstalldirs
+ aclocal-1.7 -I m4
+ autoconf
NONE:0: /usr/bin/m4: ERROR: EOF in string

root at LinUx4:~/programs/videolan# ./toolbox --update-includes
./toolbox: line 401: Makefile: No such file or directory

./toolbox: line 410: /include/vlc_symbols.h.in: No such file or directory
./toolbox: line 411: /include/vlc_symbols.h.in: No such file or directory

This command never ends...
