Hello Dan,

I have done configured this on Gentoo.
I use websvn-2.0, apache-2.2.8, pwauth-2.3.5, and samba's winbind as authenticator.
Background: My svn directory structure like this:

For per repository Access control, I modified one file.
subverison02 ~ # egrep -v '^//|^#|^$' /usr/share/webapps/websvn/2.0/htdocs/include/config.php
$config->useAuthenticationFile('/svn/acls/PROJECTA.acl', 'PROJECTA');
$config->useAuthenticationFile('/svn/acls/PROJECTB.acl', 'PROJECTB');
$config->useAuthenticationFile('/svn/acls/PROJECTC.acl', 'PROJECTC');
$config->useAuthenticationFile('/svn/acls/PCB_Design.acl', 'PCB_Design');
$config->useAuthenticationFile('/svn/acls/SERVICE.acl', 'SERVICE');
$config->useAuthenticationFile('/svn/acls/TEST2.acl', 'TEST2');
$config->useAuthenticationFile('/svn/acls/bla.acl', 'bla');
$config->useAuthenticationFile('/svn/acls/joe.acl', 'joe');
$config->useAuthenticationFile('/svn/acls/sam.acl', 'sam');
$config->useAuthenticationFile('/svn/acls/don.acl', 'don');

One acl file looks like this:
cat >> /svn/acl/TEST.acl <<'EOF'
# Any Employee <any_at_foo.com> any admin
# Homer Simpson <homer_at_foo.com> homer devel
admin = any
devel = homer
# Read access by default
@admin = rw
@devel = rw

My pam setup looks like this:
cat >> /etc/pam.d/apache2 <<'EOF'
auth required pam_winbind.so
account required pam_winbind.so

The Apache config for websvn looks like this:
cat >> /etc/apache2/conf.d/websvn <<'EOF'
<IfModule authnz_external_module>
      AddExternalAuth pwauth /usr/sbin/pwauth
      SetExternalAuthMethod pwauth pipe
Alias /websvn "/usr/share/webapps/websvn/2.0/htdocs"
<Directory "/usr/share/webapps/websvn/2.0/htdocs">
  Options FollowSymLinks MultiViews
  AllowOverride None
  order allow,deny
  allow from all
  <IfModule mod_php4.c>
    php_flag magic_quotes_gpc Off
    php_flag track_vars On
   AuthType Basic
   AuthName "Websvn: Subversion Repository Web Interface"
   #AuthPAM_Enabled on # Had to comment-out for newer apache
   AuthBasicProvider external
   AuthExternal pwauth
   Require valid-user

Edit main virutal host to include the websvn config file.
vi /etc/apache2/vhosts.d/00_ssl_vhost.conf
# Include /etc/apache2/conf.d/websvn

Customize the greeting and templates
cd /usr/share/webapps/websvn/2.0/htdocs/templates/
rsync -av calm/ johns_custom_template/
vi /usr/share/webapps/websvn/2.0/htdocs/templates/johns_custom_template/index.tmpl

I didn't include the joining the samba system to the AD domain to get winbind working, as that is a little off topic.
