I think you're very confused. You're mixing up Apache and 'svnserve'
servers, and http:// and svn:// client access methods.

The <Location> stuff is to configure apache's httpd.conf file. It has
*nothing* to do with svnserve.

When you point a client at http://servername:3690, 'svnserve' is sending
custom protocol... it's not speaking HTTP at all. That's why you're
seeing the junk in parenthesis.

If you want to access your repository as a webfolder, then configure
apache to be your server and access it via http:// on port 80. Read
chapter 6 for an explanation.
