As far as I can tell, the directory /usr/ports does not exist on your system. I am assuming this directory is the FreeBSD ports system, and you presumably do not have FreeBSD ports installed on your system. If you would like to try using FreeBSD ports, you should ask the developers of FreeBSD ports how to install it on your system. But it may not work; I don't know how FreeBSD-specific it is and whether it will work on PCBSD -- which are more good questions to ask the developers of FreeBSD ports. This is all outside the scope of what the Subversion Users mailing list is set up to support, however.

If FreeBSD ports won't work on PCBSD, consider building Subversion and its dependencies from source. Instructions for doing so are here:


If you have trouble following those instructions, please let us know.
