Please, see SVNBook | Versioning Symbolic Links
<http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.8/svn.tour.cycle.html> (scroll down to
the "Versioning Symbolic Links" section). Is this what you are asking about?

If the answer is "yes", then the platform where the SVN server runs does
not matter. You need the clients to be on Linux, but the server can be on
