Thanks a lot. Situation improved dramatically and it was indeed not very
time consuming.

I checked trunk and noticed:

* Many *.sh files are not marked executable. This may be OK if these
  files are explicitely started in a subshell or included in the current
  shell via ".". (These files were not touched today!)
  But some of these files contain also a Shebang (e.g. #!/bin/sh)
  such as tools/regression/src/ Is #!/bin/sh
  used if the file is not executable? I doubt it. So I ask myself
  whether the files are really needed.
* Same for *.pl, *.py, ...
* tools/jam/src/boehm_gc/NT_MAKEFILE
  Please remove svn:executable
* tools/jam/src/boehm_gc/config.sub
  Please re-add svn:executable

So, now I stop nitpicking :-)
