Is there a way to set this up? I would like to avoid symmlinks since that adds overhead. I would rather just have SVN automatically goto the folder similar to how the DocumentRoot works with Apache.

When you run svnserve, use the -r option to set the "root" path. So in your example, launch svnserve like this: svnsrve -r /var/svnroot. Of course you'll want to add your options (-d, --listen-host, etc) in there as well...
