Xiphos 3.1.5 does not require Sword SVN, only recommends it. (I did
the build script for xiphos)
libsword9 is not svn of sword. It is still 1.6.2. The soname version
bump was required due to ABI brackage in 1.6.2 errorsly named
libsword8. (the ABI incompatability was not noticed early enough

Note that ubuntu archive has 2.8.1-2build1. It built fine against

libsword9 is correct soname in Debian for sword 1.6.2.
Pkg-crosswire-devel packaging team has not yet decided on the soname
for sword 1.7 yet. And it doesn't matter for now, since sword 1.7 is
not released yet.
I am inclined to switch to libsword-1.7.0.so now that it is allowed by
the debian policy. Since we didn't have a stable abi release, since I
got involved in packaging sword for debian.
I do not track Bibletime's git, so I have no comments about what it
does / doesn't build against.

For precise release:
- sword & xiphos have higher version in Ubuntu Archive
- bibletime does not
I will need to re-upload bibletime 2.9.1 into the PPA or Ubuntu
Archive to rebuild against libsword9.
