I don't use Red Hat or RPMs so all I can tell you is what Subversion
requires on its own; how your RPMs are configured I have no idea.

Subversion requires apr and aprutil. These are provided by the Apache
Software Foundation (but are unrelated to the Apache web server
project). apr and aprutil are available from http://apr.apache.org/

There is no "apr 2.0." There is apr 0.9 and 1.2. apr 0.9 comes with
the apache web server 2.0, and apr 1.2 comes with the apache web
server 2.2. If you want to serve your repositories using the apache
web server, you will need to match up the version of apr between the
apache web server and subversion. (If you want to serve with apache
2.0.x, you need to build subversion with apr 0.9; if you want to
serve with apache 2.2.x, you need to build subversion with apr 1.2.)
If you do not want to serve your repository with the apache web
server, then it does not really matter which version of apr you build
it with, except that newer versions are of course better in general.

Subversion needs neon to connect to http-based repositories. If you
want to access http repositories, get neon, from http://

If you want to connect to https-based repositories, you need to build
neon with openssl support. libssl and libcrypto are provided by
openssl. http://www.openssl.org/

Since neon seems to need zlib, get the latest version of that from

Subversion does not need python, but can optionally create language
bindings for it.

If you cannot replace this with a more modern OS that already has up-
to-date libraries, I imagine it would be easiest for you to build
subversion and all its dependencies from source into a unique
directory just for this purpose (/usr/local/subversion for example).
