I'm not sure exactly what you expect the problem to be, but Subversion
does not care what hostname (or IP address) you access it as, as long as
Apache knows to pass the request off to mod_svn.

For a self-signed certificate, you will be asked the first time whether
you trust it, to which you can answer "Always" and not worry about it
