My CentOS (el7.x86_64) machine only has subversion 1.7.14 available:

% yum info subversion

Installed Packages
Name        : subversion
Arch        : x86_64
Version     : 1.7.14
Release     : 10.el7
Size        : 4.6 M
Repo        : installed
>From repo   : anaconda

There doesn't seem to be an option for subversion 1.9.4. A brief scan of
the offerings at:

http://subversion.apache.org/packages.html#redhat

isn't encouraging. CollabNet and WANdisco both require registration,
SummerSoft is either out-of-date or incomprehensible, and:

https://wiki.centos.org/AdditionalResources/Repositories/RPMForge

says: "RPMForge/RepoForge is a dead project. It is not maintained. DO
NOT USE."

Given the situation, building from source might be a reasonable
approach. I downloaded the 1.9.4 source a few days ago, to have a look
at it, and I will probably need to build it on CentOS-7; so, any
pointers Horst or others might post on this process will be appreciated
(by me, at least).
