I might be. :-)

I've been happy with Subversion installed via MacPorts for awhile
now. It's pretty easy:

1. Download the MacPorts 1.4.0 disk image from here:


2. Set up your shell which is described here:


3. Update to the latest version:

sudo port selfupdate

4. Now you can install Subversion by typing:

sudo port install apr-util +no_bdb
sudo port install subversion +no_bdb

Lots of other software is available via MacPorts, so it may be worth
your while to set this up so that you can install other software easily.
