Oracle Linux is a rebuild of Red Hat Enterprise Linux: that's actually
been a sore point between Oracle and Red Hat. So Oracle's version 6
has subversion-1.6.11 in its yum repository. You should be able to
just run "yum install subversion" to get the basic clients.

If you want more recent versions, Wandisco's and Collabnet's free
versions of their commercial software are very good, and have better
configurations for servers than the core Subversion packages from
RHEL. They're also more sophisticated servers: I've not looked at
Collabnet's in some time, but I see that Wandisco includes the tools
foor multiple-master Subversoin services, and I say "Yay, yay, thank
you for saving me a lot of work" for my next high availability or
multi-site Subversion layout..

And if you really need the latest, greatest releases for RHEL and want
to play with building, you can look at my RPM building tools at
https://github.com/nkadel/. They can be handy if you want to
manipulate configurations yourself or explore options or learn about
how RPM's are built from source. I don't recommend building from
source without at least reading the .spec file from a working SRPM, to
review the dependencies and try to get them into your system, not
merely compiled locally and haphazardly.
