FWIW, I am also using Eclipse with the subclipse plug-in and the  
MacPorts version of subversion (with subversion-javahlbindings). I  
have the exact same problem with it - and I also just use the command  
line. So I don't think anything is wrong with your MacPorts setup, but  
I do think that something may be wrong the subversion-javahlbindings  

I'm curious that you mentioned using the pure Java client. In the  
Eclipse preferences, under Team->SVN I am not able to select any  
client in the popup menu - it is active but there is nothing to  
choose! Is that not true for you?
