That part of the book probably hasn't been revised since Subversion
1.0, under which only the BerkeleyDB backend was available, and under
which that statement is true. But if you use the new FSFS backend,
which has been the default since Subversion 1.2, then you should be
able to put the repository on NFS. There may be some other
requirements about locking capabilities of the NFS share? I'm not
sure about the details as I've never looked into it.

Yes, there are no separate client or server packages, it's all one
thing. If you just want the client, build the whole thing, and then
just don't use the server parts.
