sample config which runs svnserve as user 'svn'

service svn
        socket_type = stream
        protocol = tcp
        user = svn
        wait = no
        disable = no
        server = /usr/bin/svnserve
        server_args = -i -r /srv/svn
        port = 3690

yes it is possible, but someone with knowledge about Subversion's
RPM specfiles might be able to help better than me.
I suggest reading RPM tutorials/HowTos first.
