Thanks, all! You were right on the money. The question/answer was also in the FAQ which I failed to see until after I posted my question and received your responses. :(
I am trying to use mod_dav_svn with Apache on Win32 and I'm getting an error saying that the module cannot be found, yet the mod_dav_svn.so file is right there in \Apache\modules.
The error message in this case is a little misleading. Most likely Apache is unable to load one or more DLLs that mod_dav_svn.so relies on. If Apache is running as a service it will not have the same PATH as a regular user. Make sure that libdb4*.dll, libeay32.dll and ssleay32.dll are present in either \Apache\bin or \Apache\modules. You can copy them from your Subversion installation directory if they are not there.
If this still does not resolve the problem, you should use a tool like Dependency Walker on mod_dav_svn.so to see if there are any other unresolved dependencies.

Make sure any .dll files that mod_dav_svn needs are there in your modules
directory (libdb42.dll, libeay32.dll, ssleay32.dll). Of course, make sure
that the .so itself is there as well.

IIRC, This is due that Apache service can't find libraries for
mod_dav_svn. Try put your SVN's *.so modules directory to the PATH
