I know of two ways to change your source origin. The first is delete
all in /usr/src and checkout a clean copy. The second is use svn switch
% svn help switch
switch (sw): Update the working copy to a different URL within the same
usage: 1. switch URL[@PEGREV] [PATH]
1. Update the working copy to mirror a new URL within the repository.
This behavior is similar to 'svn update', and is the way to
move a working copy to a branch or tag within the same repository.
