I have two servers running subversion 1.0.6 (installed from ports) on
FreeBSD 4.10-STABLE. They're accessed by FreeBSD 4.X, FreeBSD 5.X,
and RedHat 9 clients using svn+ssh.

Have you RTFM-ed? It's actually quite good.

That's a good start. According to my records, I built www/apache2
WITH_BERKELEYDB=db42 and devel/subversion WITH_MOD_DAV_SVN=yes and
WITH_SVNSERVE_WRAPPER=yes. Although access to both repository servers
is via svn+ssh, I wanted the option for http access later, perhaps to
support some sort of anonymous access.

Although my setups are much simpler than yours, I don't see anything
in here that should pose any particular problem for a FreeBSD
subversion server. Do you have any specific problems or questions?
