Subclipse will not have any problems, other than that you will need to
do a refesh in Eclipse to let Eclipse know about the changes that have
been made. svnmerge would likely have problems if you did some merges
in Subclipse as the merge tracking properties would not be updated..
You'd have to remember to tell svnmerge what you did.

I do merges all the time with Subclipse and do not really see why people
need something like svnmerge. "So there!".

I think merging in Subversion is incredibly easy. Some people find it
difficult. I have watched what svnmerge does and what SVN is doing
themselves with merge tracking. I think it makes some aspects of the
merge a little easier, but I personally do not experience the problems
that those solutions are trying to solve.
