Why can't you do something like create a transcript of the session where
you try and install subversion, but it fails, and post that transcript
onto a pastebin site directly from FreeBSD?

Use script(1) to make the transcript:

   % script /tmp/session.log
   % ... do ports related things ...
   % exit

The session.log should contain a copy of everything that got printed
onto your terminal.  Pastebin sites are a dime a dozen, and you can
probably find one that lets you use standard unix tools to upload to it.

Then just post the link here.  Chances are the problem you've run into
is not unique to you, and that someone will know exactly what to do to
sort you out.  We need to see all the details though if we're going to
be able to offer you effective advice.
