I think this really depends upon the version control software you're
running, and what else you might be running on the box. Having never
used ClearCase, I can't offer an opinion there. SourceSafe I'd say
definitely needs a dedicated server simply because it's so fragile -
run VSS and IIS on it and nothing more. Even anti-virus caused
problems.

SVN, OTOH, seems to be lightweight and stable enough that it can share
with other server processes, especially if it's all for build/project
management. As long as you've got the disk capacity and throughput.
Maybe my usage scenario just isn't large-scale enough for me to be
having to worry about this stuff.
