That is because www.freepascal.org and svn.freepascal.org both refer to the same IP address, and the web server has apparently not be configured to have different virtual hosts for these domains. In particular 

  http://www.freepascal.org/svn/fpc/trunk/ and

both yield the SVN repository and

  http://www.freepascal.org/ and

both yield the FreePascal website.

Note that you can browse the SVN http urls given above also with your webbrowser. But as Vincent remarks, SVN might still fail because of the proxy badly handling 'Webdav comments'. Unfortunately the server currently doesn't seem to listen to the https port, neither to an alternative port such as port 81 (as suggested on http://subversion.tigris.org/faq.html#proxy).
