The subversion package does include 'svnserve', which is the name of the
command to run. If you want to run it at boot, you can put this in a
file named /etc/init/svnserve.conf

start on (local-filesystems and net-device-up IFACE!=lo)
stop on runlevel [016]


exec /bin/su -c 'exec /usr/bin/svnserve --foreground --daemon --config-file=/your/repo/conf/svnserve.conf' user_who_owns_your_repo

And run 'sudo start svnserve'
