If you have ssh shell access, you can install svn in your account on the
server, and access repositories in that account using svn+ssh access.
You'll need to set things up so that when the svn client connects
through ssh, it can find your local copy of svn on the path.

I haven't done this in a while, but I recall that the default build
didn't include all the support needed for svn+ssh; look over the
configure options before you build.
