The Apache conf is not relevant to the error message David gave:

Unrecognized URL scheme for 'http://svn.repository.com/svn/project1'.

David simply hasn't configured his Subversion to include Neon
support, which is required to access http- and https-based repositories.

David, if you're installing from source, download the subversion-deps
archive in addition to the subversion archive, decompress both to the
same folder, and configure subversion again. The subversion-deps
archive includes all the dependencies you need, including neon. Or,
you can download neon manually if you want and use that. (Neon is
available separately at http://www.webdav.org/ )

Another option is to install via MacPorts, which is how I got
Subversion. It's very easy:

sudo port install subversion +mod_dav_svn

is all you need to type to automatically download and install
Subversion and Apache 2 and all their dependencies.
