I believe that standard svnserve control only allows you to control what
level of access *all* anonymous/authenticated users have. For anything
finer (either per-directory control, or, as in your case, per-user
control), you need to use the authz system. This is available in 1.3.x
servers (it wasn't before). Unfortunately, the online book hasn't been
updated with instructions yet. If you "svnadmin create" a new
repository, it'll have a sample authz file, which should get you going;
beyond that, the instructions for the http version of authz (which
Daniele pointed you to) apply to the svnserve version as well.

So, in short, you don't need to run apache, but you do need to use
authz--and the best documentation on that is in the apache section of
the manual.
