What's unclear in the book? Chapter 7 has a whole section that
documents every variable in ~/.subversion/config, and even says:

"In addition to the per-user configuration area, Subversion also
recognizes the existence of a system-wide configuration area. This gives
system administrators the ability to establish defaults for all users on
a given machine. Note that the system-wide configuration area does not
alone dictate mandatory policy—the settings in the per-user
configuration area override those in the system-wide one, and
command-line arguments supplied to the svn program have the final word
on behavior. On Unix-like platforms, the system-wide configuration area
is expected to be the /etc/subversion directory; on Windows machines, it
again looks for a Subversion directory inside the common Application
Data location (again, as specified by the Windows Registry). Unlike the
per-user case, the svn program does not attempt to create the
system-wide configuration area."
