Ok, it's sorted. May I suggest that in the INSTALL document (1)
the section in 'Configuring Apache for Subversion'

        <Location /svn/repos>
            DAV svn
            SVNPath /absolute/path/to/repository
        </Location>

is changed to:

        <Location /absolute/path/to/repository>
            DAV svn
            SVNPath /absolute/path/to/repository
        </Location>

And (2) the same in the example in the 'Running and testing' section.

To those who know, it may be clear that "/svn/repos" means the actual
repository path, but I made the - not stupid - assumption that
"/svn/path" was similar to a cgi-script or something, and merely
served to trigger SVN on the server side, and that it would receive
the path from the SVNPath field, and was therefore fixed text.

If the 'Location' and the path in the URL must match and specify the
path of the repository, then what is the 'SVNPath' for? Isn't there
a bit of duplication of information there? My assumption was that that
was not ;-)

Thanks for the help! Now to start playing ... :-)
