Yes, it's supported. Search the book for "https"

Does "http://" work?

"svn --version" should tell you whether your svn has https support.
If not, you need to rebuild it with the appropriate options.

If it still fails, try splitting the problem into client and server
halves. Can your svn client access a known-good https svn server?
If not it's probably neon compiled without SSL support. Can your
web browser access your svn repository via https? If not you
probably have an Apache config problem.

I'm sure the next script kiddie who hacks into your server will find
it hilarious that you go to all the trouble to setup https but can't
be bothered to apply critical security updates. :->
