No, sorry. mod_dav_svn is an Apache module.

 My problem is that my single IP address has already got Tomcat listening to
 port 80, and when I switch Subversion to another port I will have problems
 with the firewall that protects my Subversion clients.

Three options that I see:

a) Move to Apache listening on port 80, connected to Tomcat using mod_jk.
   This is probably the most direct route, and you might find that you enjoy
   some of the benefits of running Apache/Tomcat in this manner.

b) Convince Tomcat's HTTP service to operate as a proxy server. Presumably,
   one would need an HTTP proxy servlet to do this, but maybe Tomcat can do
   it natively; I couldn't say for sure.

c) Run Apache on port 443. Convince your firewall admins that you need port
   443 opened up for an SSL application. :-)

I'm sure there's more, but starting with c) above, they start getting
obnoxiously hackish.
