We discussed this on IRC. I checked how Apache handles this, and it seems
to just use getpid on all platforms. I don't know how it gets its
declaration, except that it includes unistd.h where available. If someone
could just check the attached patch on Windows before I commit it, it
would be appreciated.

I didn't bother to delete the pid file, since currently, svnserve doesn't
have any cleanup handling and it doesn't seem trivial to add this in a
portable way.
