How to compile mod_dav_svn.so

Based on these instructions on how to compile mod dav svn, I managed to get our old Red Hat server serving our public subversion repository.

I’m a little surprised by how little documentation there is on how to do this considering it is such a great way to make a code repository available to authorized users. I was unable to find any clear information on how to do this on subversion.tigris.org or on apache.org.

So, how do I know what name to use with the Apache configuration option –enable-MOD_NAME? The configure option –enable-mods-shared=all is a nice shortcut, but not very realistic in a real hosting environment. I’ve read in several places that you should only enable the modules you are really going to use and enabling all just seems like a bad idea. Can anyone help?
