Topic: Problem with "make package/symlinks" when cert accepted temporarily

When compiling the development branch of Kamikaze according to … ikazeHowTo, I have faced the following problem:

$ svn -q checkout kamikaze-trunk
Error validating server certificate for '':
 - The certificate hostname does not match.
Certificate information:
 - Hostname:
 - Valid: from Thu, 18 Oct 2007 10:42:10 GMT until Mon, 17 Nov 2008 11:42:10 GMT
 - Issuer: Equifax Secure Inc., US
 - Fingerprint: b1:41:e1:2c:ed:b0:60:27:50:4f:74:3e:41:b6:2c:bc:c7:f1:fb:a0
(R)eject, accept (t)emporarily or accept (p)ermanently?

When (for security reasons) I accepted the certificate only temporarily, then the command "make package/symlinks" hangs.
I've investigated the tree of the processes, and I have found that the hanging command is the "svn up".
Probably it also asks about the acceptation of the certificate, but the message is not displayed anywhere, and svn waits forever...

Simply accept the certificate permanently. But I also would like to see a non HTTPS subversion repo.

Anyway the best solution seems to use "make V=99" instead of "make", then I get all the pronpts displayed and can answer them interactively.

The discussion might have continued from here.
