Not sure... Mac OS X isn't so different from other Unix-like
operating systems, so I'd expect the instructions in The Book to
mostly apply. But I haven't gotten around to setting up a proper
server on my Mac yet; so far, I'm just using it as a client to
connect to a repository on a Linux server.

If you don't need the extra features thet Apache gives you, like
advanced permissions, then svnserve is supposed to be appreciably
faster.

As you like... I personally found it quite convenient to install via
DarwinPorts [1], since it handles all the dependencies for you:

$ sudo port install subversion

If you want to use Subversion over Apache2, then do this instead:

$ sudo port install subversion +mod_dav_svn

That'll also install the Apache2 module for you, along with Apache2
itself.
