Subversion is based on the GNU autotools as build system, so the
straightforward way is to pass '--prefix=<whatever>' to the configure script.
You will have to do some more setting up of some paths (in particular that
for the dynamic linker) though, but a 'make install' already tells you that.

Another problem is providing the necessary service via the net. The easiest
would be to use svnserve [x]inetd, but without root access that's not for you
to configure. It's an isolated change though and running subversion as your
user so you might even be able to convince people to set it up for you.
Otherwise, using svnserve on any available port would be an idea, but getting
the service up and keeping it running is more complicated that with inetd
(I'm not sure how to best setup this scenario).
