The focus of Subversion (as of CVS) is to retain control over revisions of files in a project.
The focus of arch (and of darcs, monotone, etc) is to manage changesets, i.e., independent developments tiers by contributors.
Subversion is more mature (portability, file name issues (spaces!)). Arch has a very interesting architecture. Both have security issues, addressed by darcs and others (in particular, OpenCM).
Depending on your need, there are many factors to look at when choosing a code control system. Google around and learn about the joys of code management - this is still a wide and open field!
