mod_dav_svn is a part of the software called Subversion (or more properly: Apache Subversion, since it is owned by the Apache Software Foundation). So are the Subversion command line programs (including svn, svnadmin, svnlook, svnsync and others) and the Subversion libraries (including libsvn_base, libsvn_client, libsvn_delta and others).

You don't need the Subversion command line programs to use Apache httpd and mod_dav_svn, but you do need the Subversion libraries. You also need mod_dav_svn to have been built for the same version of Apache httpd you're going to run. This is easy if you build from source, but if you're installing pre-compiled binaries make sure they're properly matched.

Both Apache httpd and Apache Subversion require the Apache Portable Runtime (apr) and the Apache Portable Runtime Utility (apr-util). It's probably a good idea to use the same apr and apr-util libraries for everything. Again, this will probably take care of itself if you build from source, but verify this if you install a binary.
