How about...

Per-repos logfiles are specified in the repos config file. If there is
no per-repos logfile, or the config file can't be parsed or something
thus we can't find out about it anyway we fall back to a global log
file. The global logfile is controlled by an svnserve command line
option or an /etc/subversion/somethingorother directive, if no global
logfile is set up then no logging happens, the same situation we have
currently.
