I think the easiest and the safest thing to do is
to reinstall the entire subversion. Is there any
risk I am unaware of, that you can think of? Please
advise.

Thank you.

That means your svn command is not only missing its SASL support, it's
also missing its neon/serf support, without which it cannot connect to
http repositories. You'll have to investigate why neon and/or serf are
not present or working, and possibly reinstall them or your svn client.
