Yes, it means you used a Subversion client of version 1.5.0 or
greater with that working copy, which auto-upgraded the working copy.
Now you can only use Subversion clients of at least version 1.5.0
with that working copy.

Mallik, as Hari said, there is no option to compile only the client
or only the server. When you compile Subversion, both the client and
server parts will be built. If you only want the client part, then do
not use the server part. :)
