The client installer does not contain any server pieces, not even
svnadmin. If you want svnserve, when you install the server version
that is an option. So you do not need to install any of the Apache
parts. Plus, whether you install svnserve or Apache, you do not have
to take the option to set it up as a service. In which case, it is
just sticking the bits on your disk for you.
