Did you install from the Fedora rpm packages or from somewhere else?
The latest subversion for FC6 would appear to be 1.4.3-2.fc6.  That
rpm requires libcom_err.so.2:

$ rpm -qp --requires subversion-1.4.3-2.fc6.i386.rpm | grep libcom

Which is provided by e2fsprogs-libs:

$ rpm -q --whatprovides libcom_err.so.2

I haven't logged into my FC6 system in a few weeks or so, but svn
worked the last time I tried it, using what I believe to be the
current version.  It is possible some update since then has broken
things and I haven't noticed because I haven't logged in and updated
that system.

I think something is amiss on your system, though I'm not sure what
that is.  Do any of the following commands report anything

$ rpm -q --requires subversion | grep libcom

$ rpm -V subversion

$ locate libcom_err.so.3

$ rpm -q --whatprovides libcom_err.so.3

Also, what's the exact error you get when you run the svn command (and
the command you're running)?
