I fear this was a bit confusing, my apologies...

I gave this info only for sake of completeness. You don't need a
subversion server, SubClipse only needs a subversion client, either
command line (slow), or via JNI (javaHL) or a pure java implemenation

(Of course, you need a subversion-server at some place to manage
the repository, but it is the job of the subversion client to talk
to the server and SubClipse only talks to the client)

Currently, you are trying to get JNI/javaHL to work. For this, the
svn-javahl.jar must be able to call through to the native code of the
subversion client. Especially this means dynamically linking to
libsvnjavahl-1.so and its dependencies. And the best way to get
this to work is building your onw subversion (client).

Further on, Subclipse must be able to find svn-javahl.jar (this is
not a problem in most cases, because this is shipped with the
plugin and refered in plugin.xml). And svn-javahl.jar must be able
to find libsvnjavhl-1.so. This can be accomplished by using a
wrapper scirpt to start eclipse and to
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib
in this script (and of course, libsvnjavahl-1.so needs to be
properly installed to /usr/local/lib and registered with the
dynamic linker (ldconfig executed by root)

I hope this explanation made things a bit clearer.
