Yes, i do. (I am the maintainer of the packages...)

Normally you would install the -ssl variants, if you are not in a
country where these versions are prohibited. (But don't ask me about
the legal details!)

I should update these descriptions, you are right. Any suggestions?

Anyhow, if you type

% fink describe svn-ssl

you get:

svn-ssl-0.32.1-11: Compelling replacement for CVS
  The svn-ssl package installs a stand-alone server 'svnserve'. To
  install the apache2 based network server please install the fink
  package 'libapache2-ssl-mod-svn'.

If you only need the client, do:

% fink install svn-client-ssl

if you want a stand-alone server, do:

% fink install svn-ssl

if you want an apache based server, do:

% fink install libapache2-ssl-mod-svn

You do not need to care about the -shlibs. They contain the shared
libraries and are installed if necessary.

Does that answer your question?

Best, Chris.
