So you compiled both Apache and Subversion, correct?

This is okay if you're going to have one repository called repos. Otherwise,
you probably want to use the SVNParentPath directive.

/etc/httpd is for the compiled version of Apache that comes with RedHat. If
you compiled your own, the modules are likely located at /usr/local/apache2/
modules. Moreover, you're probably running the wrong version of httpd as
well. I'm not sure what comes with RedHat 9, so I can't say for certain.

I think the fact that you're trying to run against a different version of
Apache than what you compiled it for is what's causing this problem. Shut
down you other httpd server, and try running '/usr/local/apache2/bin/
apachectl -k start'. See what you get from that.
