First you have to setup an LDAP server and get your users and passwords
configured in it. OpenLDAP works fine. See its docs.

Then you need to configure your OS to allow logins via LDAP. That's
quite easy with modern Linux distributions that come with PAM already
setup to support LDAP logins -- you probably just have to change a
few lines in /etc/ldap.conf

Once you have LDAP logins working, and svn+ssh working, then you should
find that the LDAP users can use svn+ssh just like the local /etc/passwd
users, with no extra integration necessary. That's the whole point of
PAM (and the similar schemes in other modern OS).
