The Bitnami LAMP stack doesn’t have an SVN server or client binaries available so you will need to compile in your own if you want to use SVN to deploy and manage your web sites on Bitnami.
mv sqlite-amalgamation-3071501 sqlite-amalgamation
sudo apt-get install zlib1g-dev
vim Makefile <– yes I added -liconv as link time option
sudo apt-get install libaprutil1
sudo make install
