I would go with a more updated version. I had some problems with the
FC1 version and I really wanted to keep a little more currrent. So I
found 2 places to get SVN rpms for FC1:

 http://dag.wieers.com/packages/subversion/

    -and-

 http://atrpms.net/name/subversion/

I tried the DAG rpms first and they worked great I'm now up and running
a svn+ssh server and things are great.
