If you serve your repository with svnserve, you must use a plain text
file for the usernames / passwords as described in the documentation.
A file created by htpasswd will not work.

However, if you serve your repository with apache, you can use any
authentication method supported by apache, and apache certainly
supports htpasswd files.
