Not true. Current Subversion (i.e. 1.1) does not require any additional
software a server. Sure, it will be a FSFS only server, but a server
none-the-less. The actual svnserve server is a tiny piece of code. Most of
the functionality is in the subversion libraries, which you would still be
building in a client-only build anyway.

The above, of course, applies only to Subversion 1.0.x.
