Well, you could provide more technical details (such as the actual
error message and not a summary like "it doesn't recognize 'svn'
command") and less useless legal disclaimer.

On Unix, the current directory is not included in the default path
(for very good security reasons). So, even if you are in the directory
where the "svn" command is, it won't work. But Subversion's "make"
should install everything in a sensible place.

What is your operating system? Most common operating systems have a
binary package, you typically do not need to compile
anything. Everything is already compiled and installed at a place
where you shell will find it.
