Yes, I've got libsvn_auth_kwallet-1-0-1.8.11-2.11.1.x86_64 installed.

OK, I'd overlooked that.  What -devel package provides the necessary 
headers? kdebase4-runtime provides kwalletd, but kdebase4-runtime-devel 
doesn't provide kwallet.h.  There is a separate kwallet-devel package which 
depends on libkwalletbackend5-5, neither of which I have installed and 
which in any case don't seem to be necessary for KWallet to work.

OK, I installed the packages from this repository and now everything works 
as expected.  Subversion no longer warns me about storing unencrypted 
passwords; instead it seems to be storing the password in kwallet.
