A datapoint for you: At work, both server and client of 1.6.x are currently built and run on AIX on Power machines (though not all permutations of server/client). I've been using it on Power since Subversion 1.0. I also run Subversion on my G4 and G5 (PowerPC) Macs, though that's less extensively exercised.

We haven't noticed any corruption issues that could make me suspect endian-related corruption.
