The last line says that you should report this to the CentOS bugtrackers, which is what you should normally do. It does seem, however, that you installed httpd from a non CentOS repository. If that is the case you will have to let us know how exactly you did that.

In the interim, the answer to your current question is:

  • Remove the non-CentOS packages from your machine (httpd in this case)
  • Install subversion as you did

Or, alternatively, you can try this:

yum downgrade httpd-2.2.3
yum install subversion

You should then be able to just rebuild httpd the same way you did before.
