You should not be mixing and matching here. CollabNet Subversion is a
complete distribution that includes Apache and mod_dav_svn. You
cannot go out and safely add in any additional modules.

The script exists to simplyify setting up the Apache server and users.
 It is ultimately just running the same tools you would do yourself
