It looks like you're trying to host Subversion served through Apache
on port 3690. This is very confusing because 3690 is the port number
registered for use with the svnserve protocol. You should not do such
confusing things. :)

I second (or third) the recommendation the other respondents made:
create a second virtual host (either a named virtual host on the same
IP, or an IP-based virtual host on a new IP) and set up Apache on that.

Subversion does not support redirects, such as the one you're trying
to set up using RewriteRule. Sorry; that just won't work.
