it's certainly possible to build subversion on freebsd (many of us do
it all the time), but why are you trying to use the RPMs to do so?
the RPMs are linux packages, and you won't get very far on FreeBSD
with them.

to build on FreeBSD you should start from either the FreeBSD port
(located in the FreeBSD ports tree in devel/subversion) or from the
tarball on http://subversion.tigris.org/.

if you want the most up to date version of the FreeBSD port for
subversion (and apr, which it depends on), you can grab them from
http://svn.collab.net/repos/svn/trunk/packages/freebsd. this is
probably your best bet, as the tarball requires a little tweaking to
get the berkeley db libraries from the ports tree to work, and the
most recent version of the ports have not been committed to FreeBSD
yet (i submitted them, but they're stuck waiting for someone to
actually commit them).
