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.

2. Update the property 'svnant.location' in /[build.home]/cruise/

3. Invoke to start build system as the original.

Main Changes

1. Add <svn> task definition to ant scripts.

2. Extend the org.eclipse.releng.basebuilder by adding a new build tool named 'svn-pde-builder'.

3. All map files are changed to the format supported by svn-pde-builder.

4. All the customTargets.xml in each component are changed to use <svn> to download map files.
