Your original configuration was essentially the same as mine. I don't know
whether the message about 'database is locked' is relevant or a result of not
being able to open the svn filesystem but if you can get a listing of all the
repositories then the basic apache configuration is working and would
indicate to me something is amiss in accessing the actual repository files
themselves.

In your original email you said

Does the page with the list of repositories report version 1.6.1 at the
bottom? If it does then I'm out of ideas except to use strace to see what is
going on inside the httpd process. strace lists the system calls made such as
opening files or sockets and includes the results so you could run something
similar to this (I need to specify the path to openssl as the system one is
incompatible with the version I build)

strace -ffFv -o strace.txt env -i LANG=C
PATH=/path/to/svn/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/path/to/openssl/lib ./apachectl start &

try to access the repository and then shut down the application server. This
will generate a bunch of strace.txt.<pid> files, the largest file is likely
the one you want to look in, search for your repository path and see if
anything interesting pops up regarding the return values.
