To be honest, I don't think it is possible. Every note I have ever seen
on the topic states that the SVNAccessFile is case sensitive. Perhaps a
work around for you would be the use of aliases
(http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.5/svn-book.html#svn.serverconfig.pathbasedauthz) You could put in the common variations of a name all mapped to a single case. Then use that case through the rest of your permission set.

Regards,
Frank
