But symlinks are always executable.  I don't know what svn does with

There are problems in other bin/* dirs too, except win32 and
x86_64-linux, though I didn't treat the differently.  I do not get the
same error messages than you.  When running svn stat I get:

  L    .
  L    trunk
! L    trunk/Master
! L    trunk/Master/bin
?      trunk/Master/bin/i386-freebsd/dvitype
?      trunk/Master/bin/i386-freebsd/bg5+latex
! L    trunk/Master/bin/i386-freebsd
?      trunk/Master/bin/i386-openbsd/dvitype
?      trunk/Master/bin/i386-openbsd/bg5+latex
! L    trunk/Master/bin/i386-openbsd
?      trunk/Master/bin/mips-irix/dvitype
?      trunk/Master/bin/mips-irix/bg5+latex
! L    trunk/Master/bin/mips-irix
?      trunk/Master/bin/powerpc-darwin/dvitype
?      trunk/Master/bin/powerpc-darwin/bg5+latex
! L    trunk/Master/bin/powerpc-darwin
?      trunk/Master/bin/alpha-linux/dvitype
?      trunk/Master/bin/alpha-linux/bg5+latex

And svn clenup says:

svn: In directory '.'
svn: Can't copy '.svn/tmp/text-base/dvitype.svn-base' to '.svn/tmp/dvitype.tmp.tmp': Success

There are obviously problems with dvitype (not a symlink) and
bg5+latex.  I already exported the bin dirs from rev 6968 and could
replace the files but my working copy is locked, hence I can't delete
them.  Can you?

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
