As far as I know, the linking is an out-of-the-box feature that should
be available in your version of trac. So, r1234 would make a link to
the revision 1234, and #1234 would create a link to ticket number

As for automatically adding the comment to the ticket if you reference
the ticket number in the checkin comment, I would assume that this is
done either by a post-commit hook in subversion and/or a trac plugin.
I always just assumed that whoever did the checkin also manually added
a comment to the ticket.
