What I did here was, install svn in /opt/svn-1.1.1 (and created a
symlink of /opt/svn that points to it), then I went into /usr/bin and
did ln -s /opt/svn/bin/*

This A) Puts the svn programs in the path of all reasonable users. B)
gives you a sensible directory structure in /opt that can be upgraded
without pain (next version goes into /opt/svn-1.1.2, recreate the
symlink of /opt/svn to point to it... /usr/bin links will "just work" at
that point.), and C) gives you a reasonable back-out plan if you need it
(just change the /opt/svn symlink back to /opt/svn-1.1.1 if need be).

Hope this helps,
