You don't need to do anything with Apache if you only want to operate
SVN locally.
May I suggest http://svnbook.red-bean.com/ as a first port of call?

Anyway, you can set up a local repository with

$ svnadmin create /path/to/repos

from here on in, you just use a file:// URI to refer to the repository,
i.e.

$ svn import /some/project file:///path/to/repos
$ svn checkout file:///path/to/repos/ path/to/workingcopy

etc.
