We don't need to worry the run-time dependency.
Let's think about some actual kdevelop user who is using subversion too.
In his computer, svn command-line tools and its libraries are already installed.
We do not need to use dlopen to use subversion libraries.

So, If somebody tries to compile kdevelop, the extra package he should install
is libsvn-devel. For non svn user, he can just disable subversion part.

It looks like a policy problem. Very complicated!
