When serving your repository with Apache, Subversion supports all
authentication methods made available by Apache. If this passwd file
in your project directory is in htpasswd format, then clearly you can
tell Apache where this file is and everything works fine. But if your
passwd file is in some other format, then you will need to find an
Apache module that supports authentication against that kind of
passwd file. And that may be a question best asked on an Apache
mailing list or support forum.
