As a manager of the MacPorts project, I can heartily recommend you
use MacPorts to install Subversion for you, along with any other
software you might need. It's very easy:

1. Download and install MacPorts from http://www.macports.org
2. Open a terminal and type "sudo port install subversion"

Done. Subversion and all its dependencies have been downloaded,
compiled and installed for you.

If you want Apache 2 and the mod_dav_svn module too, add
"+mod_dav_svn" at the end of the line, e.g. "sudo port install
subversion +mod_dav_svn".

If you also want everything in the tools and contrib directories
installed for you, add "+tools".

To learn about all the options available, use "port variants

For more about MacPorts, the documentation is at http://
guide.macports.org and the macports-users mailing list is a great
place to ask questions.

If you really really want to compile Subversion yourself, you're also
welcome to read the MacPorts portfiles to see what compilation
options have been used, e.g. here is the portfile for Subversion itself:


You would also then want to read all the portfiles of all of
Subversion's dependencies, and of those dependencies' dependencies,
and so on. It looks like in MacPorts there are 16 other packages that
are required before Subversion itself can be installed.
