I don't think it's possible to get svnserve to directly make use of
/etc/passwd. At least that's my understanding after reading the
Subversion book. I can only think of alternate solutions:
* Use SSH authentication.
* Use an Apache authentication module that relies on /etc/passwd.
* Directly access file:/// URLs.
