But this means putting a set of Subversion binaries on each server and not the NFS mount. However, the binaries don't require much configuration. As you said, hooks scripts and other stuff involving the repositories themselves is where all the configuration occurs.

Wow, that would be great! Can someone else confirm this for me and
explain how it works or point me to something I can read about it?
Why would this work only if the binaries aren't on the NFS mount? I
can see the need for different configuration files in Apache due to
different host names for the servers. Is there some other reason the
binaries would need to be off of the NFS mount?

I will also look further into svnsync to see if that is a better
option for me than rsync.

Thanks for your advice!
Justin
