RE: RPM vs from source... Is there a recommended method?

I can't speak to installing Subversion specifically from a package, but
here's how I think about the issue in general:

I prefer packages:

-- when I can get matching documentation about any idiosyncrasies in the
-- when I don't care whether the package designer put files in unique,
nonstandard places in the filesystem or left some features out
-- when I'm expecting to need frequent updates and don't want to bother with
-- when I don't need a well-optimized build and a more-generic build is OK

I build from source:

-- if I can't find a suitable package
-- if I want specific control over build options, perhaps for
very-high-performance hardware

Hope this helps. Erik
