Depending on how closely you followed the document, I think I might have
your problem...

I <gag> installed Subversion on Windows </gag> and found that if you
change the reference for the Apache SVN modules from their location in
the Subversion folder, I got the same error as you. If you take the
standard installation from the Subversion installation wizard, there is
an option to modify the Apache configuration automatically. I chose
this configuration as well, and the system starts without any problems
with the module being referenced in the Subversion folder.

Without being a builder, I am going to say there is a dependency on some
of the .dll files in there...

Give that a go - change your httpd.conf to point to the Subversion
program folder.

LoadModule dav_svn_module "C:/Program Files/Subversion/bin/mod_dav_svn.so"
LoadModule authz_svn_module "C:/Program
