I think you're missing some fundamental concepts about how svn+ssh://
works. You should read this section of the book:


"The important thing to understand here is that the Subversion client is
not connecting to a running svnserve daemon. This method of access
doesn't require a daemon, nor does it notice one if present. It relies
wholly on the ability of ssh to spawn a temporary svnserve process,
which then terminates when the network connection is closed."

The svn client is running 'ssh remotehost svnserve -t'. You don't need
to do a thing on the server, other than have 'sshd' running and
'svnserve' installed.
