There are two issues with this.

The first is that the software you describe seems to not have a
maintainers, and thus the bit-rot has set in.  Having it in our SVN
doesn't change anything.

Secondly, with a few very rare exceptions, the host software in our
repository has all of its source code copyrights assigned to the Free
Software Foundation.  So, even if we had committed maintainers for
this 3rd party code, we'd need to get copyright assignments from the
original authors.

That said, I'd be happy to help you and/or others to get them up to
date.  Since they are all GPL, there is no issue with hosting them
somewhere else and patching them up to be current.  We could even have
a wiki page dedicated to these efforts.
