svn on mainframe

Hi,

I need your help on getting information about svn binaries for mainframe.

Are the binaries available for mainframe?
else, will the source compilation work well?

We have few Unix services available in Zos IBM mainframe
operating system.

I assume it is similar to "Unix services on windows" which allow windows
machines to integrate with UNIX protocols.

Here is a link to the information I googled -
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UNIX_System_Services

An extract - "UNIX System Services allows UNIX applications from other
platforms to run on IBM mainframes. In many cases only a recompile is
necessary, although additional effort may be advisable for z/OS
integration (such as SMP/E installation support). Binary programs using
hardcoded ASCIInumerical values may need adjustment"

Linux VM on Mainframe -
we are interested in this option. The problem that we are
trying to solve is to manage source control from within a native Zos
session. this means that the tool used for checkin/checkout of code
should run on the mainframe and not inside a VM running on the
mainframe.

So, is it possible to compile svn from source with unix services in
mainframe?

Thanks a lot.
