I presume you mean you need process definitions versioned. For that
you can just use the subversion client library; you'll have to write
the workflow side of things yourself (or just google for it).
Workflow's a pretty vague term, even if tools follow the wfmc
standards (theres loads of optional bits). Generally you can't find
workflow tools to do what you think you wanted to do, you have to
change your processes to match the available tools or it'll cost you.

The one subversiony thing you mentioned that isn't covered by the
client library is user management. The way you can do this is to use
svn with apache, and switch the apache authentication module you're
using to be one for which management tools exist, eg LDAP, SSPI. Or if
you're not going to expose svn to the end users, but manage everything
behind your own webapp, you can just use properties on files to
indicate ownership etc, and manage authn/authz for yourself. If you're
doing *that* you might as well look at something like Apache
