The installer you speak of installs to /opt/subversion but does so in
a way to not step on existing installations, like the 1.4.4 version
that comes with Leopard. This means that the installer will not
update the PATH environment variable, to make it where the new version
is the default version used, and it also will not migrate any existing
systems (Apache, Perl, Python and Ruby) using Subversion to use the
new version. To use the new version of Subversion with your
previously installed Apache 2.2.x, all you have to do is update the
Apache configuration file to load the libraries in
/opt/subversion/lib/svn-apache instead of the previous location.
There should be no need to recompile anything. It should just work.ô
Let me know how things turn out.

Take care,
