Actually, it's done with an Apache directive in httpd.conf:

   <Location /repos/svn>
           DAV svn
           SVNPath /usr/www/repositories/svn
           AuthType Basic
           AuthName "Subversion repository"
           AuthUserFile /path/to/user-password-file
           <LimitExcept GET PROPFIND OPTIONS REPORT>
             require valid-user

And no, those aren't their real encrypted passwords :-).
