I guess not (not available on linux -> *nix).

Anyway, you should be able to use the kerberos module (the admin of the
AD should creates
something for you), or 'simply' by using LDAP.

In that case, I suggest to use an AuthnProviderAlias, to be more
flexible (eg. to mix authentication
through the AD server and using local user-password file).

There is plenty of documentation that google can gives you, but I can
give you a small example:

first, you have to find the 'distinguishedName' of the user how will do
the request.
assuming that the user 'guest' (password='guestpass') will do that, and
will have a dist.name like
on the server (machine 'mycomp-dc.net'),

you just have to configure the apache server like that:

<AuthnProviderAlias ldap ldap-dc>
  AuthLDAPBindDN "CN=guest,OU=Users,OU=MyComp,DC=server,DC=net"
  AuthLDAPBindPassword guestpass

and use this alias in a normal SVN location:

<Location /svn/projectXYZ>
        DAV svn
        SVNPath ...
        SVNAutoversioning on
        SVNIndexXSLT "/layout/svnindex.xsl"
        AuthzSVNAccessFile ...
        AuthName "MyComp project xyz svn"
        AuthType Basic
        AuthBasicAuthoritative off
        AuthzLDAPAuthoritative off
        AuthBasicProvider ldap-dc
        Satisfy Any
                Require valid-user
