You shouldn't need anything special to compile a minimal svn
configuration. If libraries for optional features are missing they will
simply not be included. The subversion configure script is pretty smart
about determining what it is OK to build.

Mimimal configuration requries (AFAIK)
* apr and apr-util
* expat (? may only be necessary for ra_dav)
* iconv (?)

Things you can leave out:
* openssl, neon - disables ra_dav repository access module (http,https)
  support in svn
* apache - disables building mod_dav_svn (you need to supply --with-apxs
  to build this one anyway)
* bdb - disables fs_base for Berkeley DB repository in svnadmin
* python - only need if building from a fresh checkout, not necessary if
  building from tarball
* ruby, perl, java, swig - only necessary for optional bindings

This will give you an svn that supports only the svn://, svn+ssh://, and
file:// protocols and an svnadmin that only supports the fs_fs (file
based) repository filesystem.

As far as not building svnadmin and svnlook, AFAIK there is no way to
do that, but I believe they depend on exactly the same libraries as svn
and svn, so they shouldn't give you any additional trouble.

Good Luck!
