Well, when you install mod_dav_svn, it calls apxs which should add
this line to your config. Therefor the line doesn't have to be
added (it's already there).

But, for clarity we could put a short paragraph in INSTALL about
it. Something like:

"Make sure that the mod_dav_svn module is loaded when the server
 starts. If the following line is not present in the config
 file, add it as the last one in the section where the other
 LoadModule lines are.

   LoadModule dav_svn_module modules/mod_dav_svn.so

"

Ofcourse this can be worded much better... ;)
