Newbie /etc/subversion question

Due to a timeframe constraint, I can't go digging into every posting in
the archive.

I did find a little bit to help that kinda got me going, but I still have
a couple of questions.

Reference: Advanced Topics - Runtime Configuration Area

The book says that the system wide configuation area is /etc/subversion.
That directory was not created when the package was installed (Solaris 8),
so I created it manually.

Reference: Advanced Topics - Configuration Area Layout - third paragraph

The book says that to get a default set of configuration settings, is to
remove your copy and run a command, like "svn --version", and it will
recreate the directory and populate it with default info.

My questions. The /etc/subversion directory can't be created because svn
doesn't have permission to create said directory. After manually creating
the directory, and running the svn command again, it didn't populate it
with default files. How can one get it to do that? Why wasn't
/etc/subversion created when it was installed?

Thanks for any pointers.
