I guess you've looked at the svn book (which is what I used):


but I don't use Apache, I use the built in server for checking out
stuff over my LAN. You could use this and use tcp wrappers to restrict
checkout/checkin to your home IP.

The line I've got in inetd.conf:

svn   stream  tcp  nowait  frank  /usr/local/bin/svnserve  svnserve -i

and in hosts.allow:

svnserve: : allow

I think the easiest method to add modules to Apache is rebuild but
make sure you run: make config in the ports dir before building. 

If your source code is precious to you, then you can use svn over SSL,
I believe.

I don't think there is much to know about building/running svn on
FreeBSD that is particular to FreeBSD - svn is just a load of perl
scripts AFAIK.
