Linux itself is relatively flexible about library paths and multiple
versions of things, but the RPM packaging system generally just wants
to manage a single version at a time on a machine (with a few
exceptions).    Some brute-force solutions would be to recompile from
source, either with a static linkage to the current library or on the
target machine against the outdated libs.   Or copy the current .so
file over to some other path that you would add to LD_LIBRARY_PATH in
the environment when running svn.  Or if you don't care about branch
tracking, you might compile a 1.5 version from source that would not
have the library requirement but still has wire-protocol
