Patch for adding svnlite(1) to Makefile.inc1, make.conf(5) and build(7)

There seems to be an inconsistency with svnlite(1). The initial commit
(r251886) says that it was included for checking out and committing source.
Nevertheless, the make.conf man page says, in the SVN_UPDATE section, that no
subversion client is included in the base system, and indeed 'make update' does
not work by default, as it searches for /usr/local/bin/svn.

I have attached a naive patch which replaces svn(1) by svnlite(1) in the
build(7) and make.conf(5) pages, as well as the path to svnlite(1) in

In Makefile.inc1, it would be nice to account for the possibility of an user
setting WITH_SVN in src.conf(5) and thus obtaining a 'svn' binary instead of
'svnlite', but I'm not competent enough to do this properly.

If the idea of this patch is accepted, I think we should also consider
resolving #194080.

Hope it helps,
