So you are wanting to use git to clone a subversion repository because you know that git rocks and subversion is so 5 years ago! Like a great geek you run:
% git svn clone https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/camel/trunk/ camel-trunk

But you then you get the following error:

fatal: git was built without support for git-svn (NO_PERL=YesPlease).

No need to nash you teeth you need to add two lines to /etc/portage/package.use file..

dev-vcs/git subversion perl
dev-vcs/subversion perl -dso
