It is the version which came with subversion which i have intalled into /opt/zlib isn't this supposed to be working alright? Can maybe somebody give me a good Guide which has all the steps in it or tell me what i'am doing wrong? I have read the "-fPIC" Error Site from Gentoo because this was the site google was spitting out but i seem to have lack of understanding about the makefiles and where to place this -fPIC argument if it is really required.

No idea.

Any reason you're not using the latest Subversion binaries from the
OpenSUSE/SLES buildservice (apart from the fact that it seems to be down at
the moment)? Those binaries are maintained by SUSE developers with help
from other people (including myself), have been automatically packaged and
tested and are ready to be installed via yast. They are of the same
quality as can be expected from the Subversion packages that ship on
the distribution media.

If you are going to go through the effort of building your own binaries,
1.6.5 seems like an odd choice. You might as well try to build 1.6.15
which is the current stable release.
