I believe the default location for MySQL 5 databases installed by  
MacPorts is /opt/local/var/db/mysql5

What doesn't work for you? For example, if you want to run a MySQL 5  
server, you should be able to say

sudo port install mysql5 +server

and then follow the instructions printed when it's done regarding how  
to create the initial databases.

For Subversion, you should be able to say

sudo port install subversion

and get Subversion. What problems are you encountering?
