Yep. I wrote a patch that was incorporated into RANCID. Get 2.3.2a, and 
use the --enable-svn flag when compiling, i.e.

./configure --enable-svn

you can also compile it normally, and then change the RCSYS variable in 
rancid.conf from cvs to svn. DO NOT MAKE THIS CHANGE IF YUOU HAVE AN 
EXISTING CVS REPOSITORY without running cvs2svn first though.
