Certainly under UNIX you cannot: you need different instances of
svnserve for each repository you want to serve, which is a shame. I
filed a wishlist/enhancement request to allow virtual hosting of
repositories back in September:

If virtual hosting got implemented, you'd give the machine you run
svnserve on an additional DNS name - much like you do to have more than
one web site served from the same server.
