Fix issue #2591 - 'svnadmin hotcopy' does not replicate symlinks.

* subversion/libsvn_repos/repos.c
  (hotcopy_structure): If there is a symlink, then copy it.

* subversion/libsvn_subr/io.c
  (svn_io_dir_walk): Add support to recurse through a symlink. This
   does not require an API rev since we did not change the signature of
   this public API.

r981653 | stsp | 2010-08-02 18:26:18 +0000 (Mon, 02 Aug 2010)

* subversion/svn/main.c
  (svn_cl__cmd_table): Tweak documentation svn:externals within the help
   text of 'svn propset'. Rather than explaining the old (1.4 and earlier)
   syntax first, and then explaining how the new 1.5 syntax works, move the
   description of the old syntax to the very end, explain its shortcomings
   there, and discourage its use. Mention that the new syntax is similar to
   the syntax of 'svn checkout' to help people remember it better.

Fix the svnmucc symlink in svn-tools so it doesn't to link to DESTDIR.
The user can configure $(bindir) but $(toolsdir) is always a subdir
of that so a relative symlink should be OK.

Found by: Nico Kadel-Garcia <nkadel{_AT_}>

  (INSTALL_EXTRA_TOOLS): Use a relative symlink.
