  svnserve --listen-host
Or whatever IP svnserve should have on the subnet.

svnserve does not support IPv4 and IPv6 at the same time.
It defaults to the first wildcard socket the OS gives to it,
which is IPv6 on most systems today. You must use --listen-host
on those systems to get svnserve to do IPv4.

Coincidentally, just yesterday svnserve's behaviour was changed to
default to IPv4, so this issue will hopefully go away with Subversion 1.7.
People who use IPv6 only will have to use a -6 switch, until the world has
transitioned to mostly v6 so we can flip the default back.
