svn is free and it comes by default as a command line tool. It's pre- 
installed on Leopard and there are pre-compiled binaries for earlier  
versions of OSX (for example: http://homepage.mac.com/martinott/ ).  
Once you've installed the binary you can either use as command line  
tool or you can use a GUI. svnX is free and is quite nice. There's  
also a SCPlugin (http://scplugin.tigris.org/servlets/ 
ProjectDocumentList ), a free Finder subversion plugin which makes  
subversion available as a contextual menu in the Finder. Very nice.
