The postgresql-libs package that you have already installed is a third 
party package. Packages that are in Fedora and require postgresql-libs 
would be built against and  depend on the version that is in the Fedora 

You have to either remove the third party package you have installed and 
install the Fedora repository package or build subversion against the 
package you already have installed from elsewhere.
