No. Local access will not work on HP-UX.
On reflection, svnserve should work fine in the (default) forked
mode, because there's a separate process for each client request.
I don't know about DAV, but I suspect the same would hold for the
prefork MPM.

[I'm assuming you're using Apache on HP-UX, with mod_dav_svn]

It's possible. I've not touched HP-UX in a long time; I know for a
fact that people are using the client there, but I don't know about
the server.

If the server works, then the problem is much smaller than I feared.
file:// not working is a bit inconvenient (especially for testing!),
but not a showstopper.
