There's something called VCP that can convert between various version
control systems. I have never tried it and I have never tried to
convert from PVCS to anything else, so I can't say how well it would
work.

If you search the dev@subversion list archives you will see that
Chia-liang Kao's been working on a Subversion target for VCP.

VCP is available from CPAN, but I don't know if the Subversion support
exists in the latest stuff available from CPAN.
