Well, we don't test with any other value of ASSUME_PROVIDED. If you
add tools to ASSUME_PROVIDED that we would have otherwise built so

ASSUME_PROVIDED, we don't necessarily fully test the system with
native tools that we don't normally build (although that's less
likely to be an issue than the other case).

I'm not saying you can't change the value of ASSUME_PROVIDED - just
that if you do and the build breaks, you get to keep both pieces :)
completely understood. for the sake of classroom work, i'm going to
experiment with adding extra entries to speed things up, and watch if
anything breaks. my first choice would be to add subversion to
ASSUME_PROVIDED -- that seems fairly safe, any moderately current
version of subversion should work.
