That sort of wanton copying generally causes stuff to break. :)

To change the location where Subversion gets installed, run the configure step
with '--prefix=/some/path'. If you want more control than that, run './configure
--help', and it will spit out a detailed list of options, including settings for
where the different parts of Subversion get installed (ie. shared libraries,
binaries, header files, etc.).

Subversion's data (I assume you mean the repositories?) can be stored anywhere -
just specify the path to your storage partition when you create a repository.
