You can also compile Subversion with static links, then just copy the
executable to your other computers (of the same basic type--should work
in most Linux x86, for example--you'll probably have to compile a
different version for BSD or Win32). Drop it in your $HOME/bin, and you
should be able to run it from the command line (check your $PATH if
not).

I've done this for several machines. Works great. I forget the exact
syntax you pass when compiling--take a look at the ./configure options.

Cheers,
John
