So I'll try to do it.

Hmm... there is no problem to build the client alone (disable db4 and that's all). The
problem comes when trying to compile the server *alone*, as it will build the client too.
So, doing this:
	subversion -> depend on subversion-client and subversion-server
is NOT possible (easily). Probably, doing dome hacks in the configure script can solve the
problem, but I'm not sure about if the server can work without the client.

The other solution is to make a subversion-server package which provides both the server
and the client, and leave the current subversion package to only provide the client.
Although, using these names do not seems very appropiate :( Any idea? If not I'll go
and add a subversion-server (both server/client) and leave the current one as the client
