The "auto/options" file is there:

If there is no such file in your svn checkout - it probably means 
you did something wrong.

On the other hand, the "./configure" won't work in svn checkout as 
the "configure" script is under "auto/" directory.  If you need to 
run configure in an svn checkout, you should run 
"auto/configure" from the checkout root.
