Which subverson? Were you installing from the CentOS RPM's, building it
yourself, or using David Summes's RPM's?

Where is your authentication? Something like this is much more normal:

Contents of /etc/httpd/conf.d/subversion.conf
LoadModule dav_svn_module modules/mod_dav_svn.so
LoadModule authz_svn_module modules/mod_authz_svn.so

# Example configuration to enable HTTP access for a directory
# containing Subversion repositories, "/var/www/svn". Each repository
# must be readable and writable by the 'apache' user. Note that if
# SELinux is enabled, the repositories must be labelled with a context
# which httpd can write to; this will happen by default for
# directories created in /var/www. Use "restorecon -R /var/www/svn"
# to label the repositories if upgrading from a previous release.

# To create a new repository "http://localhost/repos/stuff" using
# this configuration, run as root:
# # cd /var/www/svn
# # svnadmin create stuff
# # chown -R apache.apache stuff

<Location /repos>
   DAV svn
   SVNParentPath /var/www/svn
   SVNListParentPath on

   # Limit write permission to list of valid users.
      # Require SSL connection for password protection.
      # SSLRequireSSL

      AuthType Basic
      AuthName "Authorization Realm"
# AuthUserFile /path/to/passwdfile
      AuthUserFile /etc/httpd/conf.d/subversion-passwd
      Require valid-user
