What Ben said is going to be key:

According to the release announcement for the latest version of APR
[1], it supports UNIX, Windows, Netware, Mac OS X, OS/2 and BeOS.
Those operating systems are not similar to Mac OS 9, so I don't think
APR will work on OS 9. (You could ask on their mailing list [2] to
make sure.) And if there's no APR, there can be no Subversion.

As to the WebDAV idea, if you can find a WebDAV client for OS 9 (or
if one is built-in... I honestly forget now...) then you could
connect to a repository that way. There would be no updating of a
working copy, of course; the view you see over WebDAV would always be
the head of the repository.
