I assume you built Apache2 yourself, right? Did you build it with dbm
support? I believe Subversion needs it for the Activity database. You
can do an 'ldd /path/to/your/httpd' and check that libdb and/or libgdbm
shows up. I have:
 :: ldd /usr/sbin/httpd2
        linux-gate.so.1 => (0xffffe000)
        libz.so.1 => /lib/libz.so.1 (0x40033000)
        libaprutil-0.so.0 => /usr/lib/libaprutil-0.so.0 (0x40044000)
        libgdbm.so.3 => /usr/lib/libgdbm.so.3 (0x4005b000)
        libdb-4.2.so => /usr/lib/tls/libdb-4.2.so (0x40061000)
        libexpat.so.0 => /usr/lib/libexpat.so.0 (0x40136000)
        libapr-0.so.0 => /usr/lib/libapr-0.so.0 (0x40155000)
        librt.so.1 => /lib/tls/librt.so.1 (0x40176000)
        libm.so.6 => /lib/tls/libm.so.6 (0x4017e000)

        libnsl.so.1 => /lib/libnsl.so.1 (0x401d4000)
        libpthread.so.0 => /lib/tls/libpthread.so.0 (0x401ea000)
        libdl.so.2 => /lib/libdl.so.2 (0x401fb000)
        libc.so.6 => /lib/tls/libc.so.6 (0x401ff000)
        /lib/ld-linux.so.2 => /lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0x40000000)

The strange path you see is actually a mod_dav path. It's not
representative of the actual location of your repository on disk.
