Configuration recommendations in a heterogenous Linux environment?

I'm looking for recommendations for using Subversion for version
control in a small software development company.

We have a very heterogenous Linux environment which means that there
are many different versions of subversion in the different
distribution's package systems. Doing a quick check, I can find
subversion 1.2.3, 1.3.2, 1.3.1 and 1.1.4.

We're currently accessing our CVS repository via a shared NFS file
system. I'm thinking that it's maybe best not to use the same method
for subversion, given the wide variety of subversion versions on the
workstations, and possibly other factors that I don't know about.

Any recommendations?

http://svnbook.red-bean.com/nightly/en/svn.reposadmin.create.html says
in a warning that I can create an FSFS repository (which was my plan
anyway), but seems to recommend that you use apache or

Perhaps svn+ssh, using existing accounts, to a server keeping the
repository on local disk is the way to go? Any ideas on the
performance of that compared to direct NFS access?
