before doing that, I strongly recommand that you first read the
'Do you really need path-based access control' section of the book:

It's a file that you have to create "by hands", and as it can be used to
manage acess control of multiple repositories, I suggest to not put
it in the repo subdir (you can put it more or less where you want,
but it's better to have it on a part not "covered" by apache, ie. on
directory not covered by a Directory or Location section).
=> eg. /usr/local/subversion/accesscontrol

the syntax of this file is given on the (linked) doc
