Do you know where we could get a pre-compiled Win32 binary of mod_auth_kerb.so? It would be nice to make that available as a download and reference it in the svn FAQs. I'd be willing to update the FAQs if someone can make the binary available...

Yes, it is quite possible. We are doing this in fact. We run subversion
under apache2 on a linux box and authenticate to AD. Go look at

http://modauthkerb.sourceforge.net/

The only snag we've run into happened because the principal name is
formed from the Host in the request, which in our case didn't work. This
was easy to fix.
