This is not enough to install into /local/svnroot/subversion, you also need to
tell the runtime linker where to find libraries. See e.g. man ld.so on Linux.

What URL are you using? The fact that you are talking about Apache first but
using "svn://" URLs later on doesn't seem to fit. If you only installed
Apache to get the APR, that would be fine though.

What I would try is to contact a different repository somewhere on the
internet. That would make sure that it's not TSVN which fails. Once you
verified that TSVN works (which I assume), I would try a random commandline
SVN client on a known working URL and yours. If again the client works, you
can be sure that your server setup is broken. In order to find out what's
going on, I'd then try running the client on the same machine as the server,
just in case it's IP-based access control. If there are still problems left,
I'd ask on the Subversion mailinglist, not here, since (my assumption) this
is no TSVN problem.

Cheers!
