It comes with version 1.5 and I'd like to update it to 1.7. Is it possible? It seems that I don't have apt-add-repository on this system.

There is a PPA from "Subversion Team", so it should be safe. If you cannot use add-apt-repository you can add the corresponding repository manually in /etc/apt/sources.list file:

deb hardy main 
deb-src hardy main

and importing the corresponding key

sudo apt-key adv --keyserver --recv-keys A2F4C039
