I don't know of a distinct client-only option. But you can disable
features that are only needed on the server side.

With 1.0.x, ./configure --without-berkeley-db will give you
a svn binary that's useful as a client and useless as a server, and
save you the bother of installing Berkeley db. This will happen
automatically if the build scripts can't find the right version
of the Berkeley db libraries.

(With 1.1+, I guess you technically would also have to disable fsfs
support to generate a strictly client-only svn binary, but I can't
think of a reason to do this since fsfs does not add external
dependencies.)
