*Really*? I'm surprised. Could it be in an ancilliary package,
"subversion-svnserve" or the like? I admit I've not been dealing with
Debian lately, and the HTTP based access to Subversion seems to be
more common.

You might consider just using "svn+ssh", maybe with a locked down SSH
daemon on another port, just to avoid the issue. I'm very sure that
*openssh* has systemd based init scripts suitable for tweaking.
