The official svn binaries don't have ipv6 enabled either. Don't know why
SlikSVN does.
TSVN can be very well built with ipv6, it's a simply switch in the build
script. Problem is that on most systems ipv4 is used, and the ipv6
support always first tries the ipv6 route before falling back to ipv4
which causes a slowdown. That's why ipv6 isn't enabled by default.
