I'm sure that's one of the reasons package managers were invented.
All I had to do to install Subversion on my Mac with MacPorts
installed is type "sudo port install subversion" and Subversion and
all the dependencies got downloaded and built in the right order. I
expect other package managers (fink, portage, apt, rpm) would work in
a similar way.

And for those who don't or can't use package managers, then as you
say the binary packages are quite helpful (and often somewhat client-
only, as requested, since providing all of apache would probably be
annoying and integrating with an existing apache could be difficult).
