Ah, this is *much* more helpful than your previous:

Which was flat out wrong. Something did happen. You got an error
message. And a useful one at that. The command couldn't be found.

So now we have a chance at a meaningful answer (which of course may be
wrong :-D):

Could it be that the directory subversion got installed to is not in
your PATH environment variable?

You write that make install went fine. But where did it install the
stuff to? And is that directory in your $PATH? (You can always do a make
install again and investigate the output)

prompt:$ echo $PATH
# Check to see whether the place e.g. svnadmin got installed to
# is listed!

A guess: A lot of times things get installed in /usr/local/bin, so:

prompt:$ export PATH=/usr/local/bin:$PATH
# (should get you an svnadmin somewhere...) Try:
prompt:$ svnadmin
