We already do!

Over HTTP, neon supports negotiate auth. I've made it work with
mod_auth_kerb (I'm not sure what the functional differences are between
that and modgssapache), although I had to fix a one-line bug in Neon.
See http://mailman.webdav.org/pipermail/neon/2004-November/001768.html
for details.

You can also use Kerberos authentication via svn+ssh, although the ssh
Kerberos situation is still a little murky, I think. But it can
definitely be made to work.

Some day we hope to integrate a SASL library into svnserve, which would
allow Kerberos authentication via svn:// as well.
