I've successfully implemented multiple authentication sources, but I
believe the current limitation (until Apache 2.3/2.4 is released) is
that they must all be of the same type (AuthType Basic or AuthType
SSPI). In my case, I was able to do basic authentication with a file
and LDAP.

But I thought it would still be possible. I found a sample config here

        <Location /svn/>
            DAV svn
            SVNParentPath "/srv/svn/my_projects"
            AuthName "Subversion Repositories"
            Require valid-user #this is all authenticated users on
            AuthAuthoritative Off #enables multiple authorities
            AuthType SSPI
            SSPIAuth On
            SSPIAuthoritative Off
            #SSPIAuthoritative On - Forces only SSPI auth, skips passwd
            SSPIOmitDomain On
            SSPIDomain MY_AD_DOMAIN
            SSPIOfferBasic On
            AuthType Basic
            AuthUserFile "/srv/svn/auth/basic_users"
            AuthzSVNAccessFile "/srv/svn/auth/svn_users"
