I doubt it will work. z/OS is EBCDIC. There was an OS/400 port for a
while but it is now deleted. It largely worked because the OS/400 C
compilers and runtime had an option that allowed you to work with
UTF-8.

I'd start by seeing if you can get Apache 2.x for z/OS. Subversion
must have the Apache Portable Runtime libraries to work. So the first
effort of porting Subversion to any OS, is to get APR working. If
someone has already done that, then that is your starting point.
Subversion has a lot of other dependencies. If you want to build a
client, you are going to also need things like Neon or Serf ported, as
well as OpenSSL and zlib.

You meant to say NOT interested here I think.
