A quick google indicates that this is caused by attempting to link
some non-PIC code into a shared library -- you have trimmed the error
message so that it's not possible to see exactly which non-PIC code is

You might be able to fix it by doing one of:
- install a shared version of whichever library is providing the
  non-PIC code
- configure Subversion to not build shared libraries
- if using gcc you could try linking with -mimpure-text
