auth question

Hi all.

Ok, I downloaded the tarball, bootstrapped subversion, setup a subversion
server and client successfully. It took me about 4 hours to do this. Most
of the problems were caused by programs having trouble finding berkeley db
libs in the default install location of /usr/local/BerkeleyDB.4.0/lib/.
This was despite making a symbolic link from /usr/local/lib (which works on
this system) and adding the dir to /etc/ld.so.conf. Worked around it using

I'm currently trying to figure out what authentication options are
available. I set up basic auth with a username and password, but find it
kind of irritating to randomly (well, random to me) be asked for the
username and password occasionally. I'd like to set up something so that I
could use something like a public-key/private-key thing like can be done
with ssh-keygen (and in CVS using CVS_RSH=ssh) so that all this password
business would be unnecessary without random people having access to the
repository (parts of code are under NDA). Can this be done with Apache?
Should I be asking on the Apache lists? I tried looking on the web on the
Apache site and using google but wasn't able to find anything.
