Well, after messing around with mod_auth_kerb a little bit and looking at it's
crazy code, I realized that it was going to be easiest to take another path:

Now I'm just using mod_auth_pam. I use the following apache config:

<Location /svn/XXX>
  DAV svn
  SVNPath /srv/svn/repos/XXX
  AuthPAM_Enabled on
  AuthType Basic
  Require valid-user
  AuthName "XXX Subversion Repository"
  AuthzSVNAccessFile /srv/svn/repos/XXX/conf/authz.conf

Since I do not have nor want actual local users on my system for every person
accessing Subversion, I then use an apache2 pam config something like this:

auth required pam_krb5.so ignore_root
account required pam_krb5.so

Anyway, maybe that will help if anyone else is trying to do something similar.
