It depends on what version of Mac OS X you are using. On Tiger you
need to make a launchd plist. I'm not sure what you do for older
versions. Apple should have examples of setting up launchd plists on
the developer site.

If you are going to use ssh, you don't need to have svnserve running
as a daemon. An instance of svnserve will be launched automatically
for each ssh login by the client (once you get svn and svnserve in
the user's PATH on the server). If your ultimate goal is to use ssh,
I'd say stay away from running it as a daemon.
