OK, you just made me giggle. Solaris has to be considered legacy, at
this point: since Oracle bought Sun, they're pushing customers towards
Linux, particularly Oracle's rebuild of Red Hat Enterprise Linux, as
quickly as possible. You'd be out of the frying pan and into the fire
that way.

RHEL works well, and is very stable for servers. There are free
rebuilds of it, particularly the very well integrated Scientific
Linux, if you're feeling budget conscious. SL 6.3 comes with
Subversion 1.6.11 and is quite stable.

If you want the latest/greatest Subversion for that distro, the
RPMforge repository is about to include Subversion 1.7.6 from my
published tools at http://github.com/nkadel/. Or you can test invest
in commercial support from Wandisco or CollabNet (and test their free
downloads for RHEL, which work very well.)

Good luck with that: it's not a toolkit I've used. The hard part. for
me, has been negotiating and implementing account management and
workflow, which are not really inherent in Subversion itself. There
are so *many* options, I'm encouring the commercial packages (such as
WanDisco or CollabNet) for server setups.
