The original question was about setting this up under Leopard.  
Leopard comes with Apache 2 with mod_dav_svn already built, so the  
hard part is already done. You just need to make sure the mod_dav_svn  
and mod_authz_svn modules are getting loaded somewhere in apache's  
config. (I'm not sure if they are by default. Haven't poked around in  
there much.)

This is pretty basic, but on my Debian server, I keep repositories  
on /usr/local/svn and this makes them available via apache at http:// 

     <Location /svn>
       # Enable Subversion
       DAV svn
       # Path to multiple repositories
       SVNParentPath /usr/local/svn
       # Allow anonymous read-only acccess, require auth to commit
         Require valid-user

It wouldn't surprise me if Leopard has a similar example config  

I should point out that I only use apache so anonymous people can  
checkout or export from my repositories, so that's all my config  
needs to support. Personally, I do all of my svn operations with svn
