No, using svnserve has nothing to do with Apache.

You wouldn't think so, but it's no small task either. It's not a simple
task of "daemonizing" (i.e. disconnecting from STDIN and STDOUT while
continuing to run) as it is on *nix, because you also want it to run
when no one is logged in to the machine. You have to create a Windows
service to do that.

However, have you looked at firedaemon.com yet? Their tool is *very*
stable and works extremely well, and the Lite version (which is all you
need if you only have one service to install) is free.
