Not sure what you mean about changing the links. The process you should 
have followed is as follows:

Uninstall the package version with your package remover.
Compile the svn with ./configure --prefix=/usr <your options>
Do a make install to install the new version.
Configure themes with the same prefix. Do make/make install.
Configure plugins with same prefix plus your options.
Do make/make install.
Restart the backend and any frontends and you should be running svn. You 
will need to manually install mythweb. Read the docs.
