17 Subversion provides not only the server, but also `/usr/bin/svn`, the tool for downloading stuff from a repo. This is often needed for installing stuff via Portage that upstream developers keep in a Subversion repo.
19 Actually, in this case, sys-devel/gettext depends upon git, a different version control system (presumably because some of gettext's files are stored in git) and Subversion is being pulled in by git (probably for stuff like <> and probably controlled by a USE flag).
