installing subversion on centos 3.6


I'm completely new to Linux and I would like to install subversion. I downloaded the subversion 1.4.4 package and read the INSTALL file there. It told me to run ./configure and I did, only to have it tell me that I don't have any c compilers installed. I then got a subversion rpm and a gcc rpm and trying to install either of them showed a big list of dependencies that I don't have installed. (I actually got an rpm for subversion 1.4.2, not 1.4.4) Is there some way to download a package that has everything I need to install subversion? Also, I would appreciate any links to specific files I should download and specific commands I should type to install stuff.

I've been trying a few things since my initial post. I'm basically still trying to install gcc so I can use the configure file in the subversion folder. I'm not really sure what the configure file does. Would it take care of all the subversion dependencies for me?

Trying to use the configure file of gcc 4.2.1 complains that there is no compiler, so I got an rpm of a slightly older version of gcc to install that first and then install the latest version of gcc by running configure. The gcc rpm also had a few dependencies, which were

glibc-devel-2.3.2-95.44.i386.rpm
binutils >= 2.15.94.0.2-2 is needed by gcc-4.0.2-8.fc4
cpp = 4.0.2-8.fc4 is needed by gcc-4.0.2-8.fc4
libgcc >= 4.0.2-8.fc4 is needed by gcc-4.0.2-8.fc4

I took care of glibc-devel by downloading that rpm and downloading its dependencies. When I tried doing the same with binutils, I got an error saying

warning: binutils-devel-2.17.50.0.3-6.i386.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 4f2a6fd2
error: Failed dependencies:
binutils < 2.17.50.0.3-4 conflicts with binutils-devel-2.17.50.0.3-6

It looks like it's telling me I already have some version of binutils installed, which seems to be more up-to-date than the one necessary for my gcc rpm. Any help would be appreciated.

I thought of getting yum installed to provide an easy way to install subversion, but after I ran "yum install subversion", it always got killed after saying "Downloading needed headers". Sounds like it's using up too many resources. Then I realized that I had up2date installed, so I typed "up2date -i subversion", but it told me it couldn't find any package by that name. It seems like using up2date would be the most painless way to achieve my goal, but I'm not sure why it isn't working.

I used "up2date gcc" to install it. After I installed gcc, I ran the configure file and it told me it needed apr installed. I downladed an apr rpm and installed it, but configure still doesn't see it. If you do manage to get configure to run successfully, can you tell me what you did?
