Please clarify your goal: you would like Apache to run only on port
80, and for Subversion to be served from this Apache instance on port
80 (what you've shown above should accomplish this); or you would
like Apache to run on both port 80 and port 5432, and serve different
content on each (e.g. a web site from port 80 and the Subversion
repository from port 5432)? The latter can be accomplished by adding
an additional Listen directive for port 5432, and putting the
<Location /svn> block inside a <VirtualHost *:5432> block.

Note that I don't recommend running Apache on port 5432, since port
5432 is reserved for use by PostgreSQL servers:
