If you don't enjoy figuring out how to compile software on your own,
you may want to consider using MacPorts to install Subversion for
you. It takes care of lots of things for you, like knowing where to
download Subversion from, how to compile it, where to install it, how
to update it when new versions come out, how to uninstall it.

MacPorts is at http://macports.org

To install Subversion once you have MacPorts, type for example:

sudo port install subversion +mod_dav_svn +tools

This will install Subversion, and also apache2 and the mod_dav_svn
extension, and also some contributed and optional tools that may be

If you have questions about MacPorts, you can ask on the macports-
users mailing list.
