This did change in Subversion 1.3. Authz is now available in svnserve
just as it was available in Apache before. I found this patch to the
documentation, submitted in October 2005, updating the online book:

http://www.red-bean.com/pipermail/svnbook-dev/2005-October/001152.html

Ben Collins-Sussman seemed to respond that it wouldn't be applied
until the 1.2 documentation was released, at which point work on the
1.3 documentation could begin; as we can see from the book's site,
the 1.2 documentation has not yet been released in its final form.

Authz for svnserve does appear to be described here:
