URLs will take the form of your second example. Repositories are placed
where the adminstrator wants. (i.e. they don't just "appear" under the root
space of a host)

httpd.conf will actually look something like:

<Location /myrepos/comp-tools>
  DAV svn
  SVNPath /usr/share/svn/repositories/my_public_repos
  # auth info goes here
  <Limit ... some methods>
     Require group devguys
