I'd say he just didn't know that SASL auth was added to svnserve.
It's a new feature.

The book suggests that you read the SASL documentation to
find out how to configure a given authentication scheme.
Have you read this part of the svnbook?

I quote http://svnbook.red-bean.com/nightly/en/svn.serverconfig.svnserve.html#svn.serverconfig.svnserve.sasl

 Because SASL provides so many different kinds of authentication mechanisms, it
 would be foolish (and far beyond the scope of this book) to try to describe
 every possible server-side configuration. Instead, we recommend that you read
 the documentation supplied in the doc/ subdirectory of the SASL source code. It
 goes into great detail about every mechanism and how to configure the server
 appropriately for each.

Have you tried that?
