Error Summary

i think before adding the RPMForge to yum , yum database was only checking the
Repository of "rhel1-x86_64-servers-5" but after adding RPMForge Repository also checks the "rpmforge"

finally iam ending up with the error when i run the command # yum update

I would recommend going to www.mailscanner.info and picking up the SA/ClamAV package from there.

Can you remove the offending subversion package first?
eg

rpm -e subversion

or maybe

yum update subversion
