Have you considered using MacPorts to install Subversion? You can get
it here:


And then install Subversion by opening a terminal window and typing

sudo port sync
sudo port install subversion

If you don't want to use MacPorts to install Subversion, you can
still read our portfiles to discover how we are compiling Subversion.
