question about svn under OS X (fink vs. manual)

Why does the svn fink package require ruby? There are some other things
as well that it wants to install that I wasn't expecting, to the tune
of 40 packages or so; I was expecting more like a dozen, having built
it by hand before (the 40 packages is even after I installed X11 and
Octave and some other things, so the lowest-level stuff is already

I'm wondering if there's a happy medium between blindly installing svn
and the kitchen sink with fink, and installing everything painstakingly
by hand (which in my experience is a rather exacting process).

The apache2 module installs and subsequently archives all mpm modules
for apache, and installs things like cyrus etc., so I can understand it
installing more than I would have installed if I had downloaded the
source tarballs and built it by myself, but without installing apache2
through fink can I still use fink to install svn?
