NFS does support locking, although I doubt it works well, at least not
in all cases (in my experience NFS locking didn't work reliably some
years ago on some systems including Solaris).

In any case the Berkeley DB used by Subversion does not support shared
file systems:

You really shouldn't use NFS. If you do, your repository will get corrupted:
