No, because that would be incorrect. Location can be any path
you like.

The only requirement is that you operate on the url you have configured.
IOW:

$ svn <operation> http://<hostname>/<what_i_typed_at_location>

What you did was configure the repos on http://localhost/svn/repos and
then you were trying to access it through http://localhost/repos/svn.

Nope. Read up on the Location directive in the apache docs ;)
