Subversion is built on top of the Apache Portable Runtime (APR). So
it can generally run or be ported to any OS that APR has been ported.
Many years ago I successfully led an effort to port SVN to OS/400.
This worked because the OS included Apache2 and APR already.

I am pretty sure that Apache2 has not been ported to MS-DOS, which
means that it is likely APR has not been either.
