All of Subversion's portability comes from APR, the Apache Portable
Runtime library. If APR builds an an OS, then Subversion will work
there (as well as apache httpd!)

Last I heard, APR runs on QNX and WinCE. Don't know about other
embedded OSes. You'd have to ask on dev@apr.apache.org.

My recommendation is that you would want to access the server via
svn://, since that's a protocol which is "built in" to the core SVN
libraries, and uses APR network api. If you wanted to access via
http://, then you'd have an extra dependency: the neon library, which
provides HTTP client functionality to the svn. Neon may not be as
portable as APR.
