I'd not use <Directory> tags but instead <Location> tags.

 From your example I'm guessing this is a virtual host you're using
only for Subversion? Then I think this is the right way:

<VirtualHost *:80>
     ServerName svn.example.com
     DocumentRoot /anywhere/that/exists
     <Location />
         DAV svn
         SVNPath /var/xxxx/svn
         SVNAutoversioning on
         AuthType Basic
         AuthName "My Project"
         AuthUserFile /var/xxxx/passwd/svn.passwd
         Require valid-user

If I remember correctly, you must still have a valid DocumentRoot
definition, but it will never be used for anything.

Please also upgrade to Subversion 1.2.3 so that you don't run into
any known issues which have already been fixed.
