There's not really enough information in your post to diagnose the problem.
You need to post exact transcripts of what you did and what error
messages came back.

The Summersoft RPMs work well for a lot of people. I don't recall any
problem with them, other than the usual RPM version dependency
brittleness. (Can't upgrade foo to version 37 because foo-devel is
installed and foo-devel-36 depends on foo being exactly version 36.)

Building from source is also a reasonable option, but it's harder. IMX
the biggest problem is having multiple versions of BDB on the system.
If RH has one in /usr and you install your own in /usr/local, SVN will
find a way to use the wrong one. You can totally bypass all BDB issues
by building with no BDB support and using FSFS instead.
