We are not going to fix any speed issues in 1.5.
That said, why are you so sure you must use exactly 1.4? Subversion 1.7
can create, read, and write 1.4 repositories. And there have been
significant performance improvements in the past four years...

May this be somehow related to my issue? Maybe some compilations flags are wrong for a new system, or some libraries that I'm linking against (e.g. neon)?
