Wait!  No! You don't want to check out ... you want to check out

By checking out, you're getting 
one copy of the httpd source tree for every branch and tag!  That's a 
LOT of data!

You may want to check out the Subversion book at (esp. Appendix A, Subversion for CVS

You should never need to check out the root of the repository.  
Typically, you check out trunk and use 'svn switch' to change your 
working copy to a branch for branch work.  Oh, and branches and tags 
are typically created without a working copy by operating on URLs.
