I am working on this no longer being the case (recently I started using
an external repository for the build stuff (autowaf) to avoid having
symlinks to parent directories).

The new LV2 build stuff still probably won't work except from top level,
though.  I willl solve this soon.  On that note, dev and/or user
feedback on the recently proposed scheme for LV2 extension includes
would be useful (see LV2 dev mailing list: http://lists.lv2plug.in/)

You probably need to nuke the lv2 subdirectory and re-checkout.
Unfortunatley, svn can't deal with changing a subdirectory to an
external :/

See http://drobilla.net/blog/2010/10/19/svn-changes/ (LAD related posts
to my blog are posted on planet LAD http://planet.linuxaudio.org/, if
you do the RSS thing, subscribing to this is a good idea...)

With a fresh checkout, it should.  For python you need /either/ rdflib
(pure python) or the librdf redland bindings.  It should fail gracefully
now in any case.
