You have apparently done something wrong in your config file on line 94. The config file is of course located at the path printed in the error: /Users/admin/.subversion/config. The Finder does not show hidden directories (those whose names begin with a ".") so you will have to use the Terminal to access the file, for example to have the Terminal tell the Finder to open this hidden directory, you could type "open ~/.subversion". Or you could use the Finder's Go menu, select Go To Folder, and type in "~/.subversion". Or you could install TinkerTool and use it to configure the Finder to show hidden items.
