Alternatively, if your SVN server is on Windows (I don't think you specified), you can use mod_auth_sspi; see http://tortoisesvn.net/docs/release/TortoiseSVN_en/tsvn-serversetup.html#tsvn-serversetup-apache-5 for details.

Note exactly sure what you're looking for. Domains is a strictly
Windows concept and isn't carried over into any open source
non-Windows specific package. Besides, exactly what type of "Domain
Authentication" are you talking about? Not being able to gain access
unless you're on a particular set of machines? Or, using the Windows
account to verify user access to your Subversion server?

Having people use their Windows account for logging into the
Subversion server is possible, but you'll have to configure the
Windows Domain server to allow LDAP access -- something many mammoth
sized companies are loath to do.

However, if you can get your System Administrators to allow LDAP
access to our Windows Active Directory, you can easily setup Windows
login access via Apache and the http/https protocols. We've done that
at our work. We simply lifted the directions from the Subversion book
and the Apache httpd configuration manual. The hardest part was
getting the URL for the LDAP server setup and working. But, that's not
part of Apache/Subversion configuration, that's Windows administration
