Trouble getting svn to work with https

Hi everyone,

I have some trouble getting subversion access to work.

Anonymous access for the arts module did work:
> svn co svn://

I then wanted to try the same with my username, and it did not work.
I tried:

>svn co

and I get the response:
>svn: Unrecognized URL scheme 

After further investigation I found:
"svn --version" on my machine yealds
> svn, version 1.1.4 (r13838)
>    compiled May  3 2005, 11:43:00
> Copyright (C) 2000-2004 CollabNet.
> Subversion is open source software, see

> The following repository access (RA) modules are available:

So my subversion does not seem to be able to process https. Unfortunately that 
is the protocol that you guys expect me to speak to use my username.

My subversion is current version 1.1.4 built from source.

What do I have to do.

Any help would be appreciated. Under these circumstances my write access to 
the KDE repository is gone, and I would like to have it back...

Kind regards,
