Change Build System (PDE + releng) from CVS to SVN

How to start build system

[NOTE] Here we only list the different steps compared with the original build system. 
1. Download svnant from here[1] and extract it to [SVNAnt_Location].
2. Update the property of svnant.location in file [build.home]/cruise/
3. Invoke the script to start build system.

Main Changes

1. Add <svn> task definition to ant scripts.
2. Add a new build tool named pde-svn-builder to the eclipse pde base builder.
3. All the map files are changed to the format supported by svn-pde-builder tools.
4. All the customTargets.xml files in each component are changed to use <svn> to download map files.
