I do. There are a couple options. You can use Apache as your front end server and configure
it via its LDAP support. Or, what I do, is use svnserve with SASL to perform the LDAP authentication.
 I preferred using svnserve because of the bag of hurt that is RedHat Linux which I was forced
to use.

If you are on good terms with your AD admins, you can try to get SASL/GSSAPI (Kerberos) as
the best option. If that doesn't work, and if you don't mind your passwords moving through
your network in the clear, SASL/plain will also work.

If you need to support Macs on your network, the SVN libraries supplied by Apple are not built
with SASL support, so fallback to svn+ssh. I had good luck with SVN supplied by home brew
in this case.
