Ha! That's still too complicated.

Use Debian. A big thanks to whomever packaged svn and apache2 for
Debian. It made it really easy:
   apt-get install libapache-dav-svn
   cp /usr/share/doc/libapache-dav-svn/examples/dav_svn.conf /etc/apache2/mods-available
   edit /etc/apache2/mods-available/dav_svn.conf
   restart apache2
