I don't think that would help.

Searching the web for the error messages indicates that it's a problem
with the certificates and the trust chain:

http://www.dudek.org/blog/109 ("apache needs to understand you are
acting as your own certificate authority, and not depending on an
external one")

I couldn't find anything in the changelogs for Subversion that would
explain this. And apart from different svn versions, we only updated
OpenSSL during the recent releases.
