I think we should be pointing users to the 1.1 version of the book:

http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.1/ch06s05.html

Also, the book makes reference to Apache and apachectl in this
paragraph. Was there some liberal copy&paste going on?

"So the next step beyond setting up a common group for repository users
is to force every repository-accessing process to use a sane umask. For
users accessing the repository directly, you can make the svn program
into a wrapper script that first sets umask 002 and then runs the real
svn client program. You can write a similar wrapper script for the
svnserve program, and add a umask 002 command to Apache's own startup
script, apachectl. For example:"
