Compiling Subversion "just fine" on legacy operating systems is
painful, inlcluding RHEL 4 (which contained httpd-2.0.63). The
dependencies on more recent versions of Python, neon, and SQlite are
awkward to mange.

If possible, update to RHEL 5 or CentOS 5 and grab the RPMforge
release of subversion-1.6.12. You'll save yourself a lot of pain: I
found backporting to RHEL 4 to be a big problem and gave it up as too
tough to provide a completely workable install, especially for x86_64,
years ago.
