summersoft.fay.ar.us has RPMs for RH7, 8 and 9. Easy to find. All linked
on the Distributions page. I've use summersoft to get all my RH9 Subversion
RPMs.

If you check back through the archives, you will see my (painful) adventures
in trying to sort out RPM package dependencies on a freshly-installed RH9
system from a complete newbie perspective. Here is my idiot's guide to
installing Subversion. This was written for Subversion 0.23 I believe, so
some of the steps may no longer be necessary. As for cpanflute2, I think
CPAN are now offering RPM packages.

First of all, do not install mod_perl, mod_php or mod_python in Apache 2.0.
These will prevent a clean upgrade to Apache 2.0.47.

Download apt-get
# wget
http://ftp.freshrpms.net/pub/freshrpms/redhat/9/apt/apt-0.5.5cnc6-fr1.i386.rpm

Install it (remember that you must be logged in as root, ie. su root)
# rpm –Uvh apt-0.5.5cnc6-fr1.i386.rpm

First you must update the packages that apt-get knows about
# apt-get update

Use apt-get to download and install cpanflute2
# apt-get install perl-RPM-Specfile

Download the Config-IniFiles-2.38 module from CPAN
# wget http://www.cpan.org/authors/id/W/WA/WADG/Config-IniFiles-2.38.tar.gz

Use cpanflute2 to compile the RPMs for Config-IniFiles
# cpanflute2 --buildall Config-IniFiles-2.38.tar.gz

Install the newly created RPM
# rpm -Uvh perl-Config-IniFiles-2.38.i386.rpm

Get the latest perl-CGI package (required by subversion-tools)
# apt-get install perl-CGI

Download the RPMs for Subversion (all except devel RPMs)
http://summersoft.fay.ar.us/pub/subversion/i386/subversion-latest/redhat-9.x/

Now you can update Subversion
# rpm -Uvh *.rpm

Subversion should now be successfully (and cleanly) installed.

Never heard of 'yum' before. What a goofy name. :)
