That server only offers DIGEST-MD5 authentication.  Natively, Subversion 
only knows CRAM-MD5 (if the comments in the source are still accurate; 
`grep MD5 subversion/{svnserve,libsvn_ra_svn}/*`).  So I guess you need an 
svn binary compiled/configured for SASL support, or to configure the 
server to allow CRAM-MD5.
