Better not checkout but use rsync if you care about space and don't need to
really use svn.  See http://tug.org/texlive/svn/ point 2.  The installer runs
just fine from the svn tree.

AFAIK, there will be a tarball release too this year, since it's easier for
linux distros to handle, but it is not yet part of the daily test builds.
