Well, I have a feeling it may be hard to get one automated installer that
works on all (or even a few) Linux distros, except perhaps statically
building and shipping a statically linked apache and mod_dav_svn.

If I remove from /etc/lampp/etc/httpd.conf:
# Include etc/extra/httpd-dav.conf
# Include etc/extra/lk.conf
./lampp startapache # as root
starts correctly and listening apache threads show on "ps" as user "nobody",
I think that is what you were asking about. I misunderstood the automated
script and thought it was trying to *start apache as nobody*.
On another note, I was (almost) able to install manually by editing
configuration files (reading the installation notes and the install script)
using the opensuse shipped apache2, and svn. (I am saying "almost" because
"svnadmin load" did not load the svndump into the previously created
repository - even though it listed "adding path" and "commit", no files
showed up in the expected directory. Something I must be doing wrong or
misunderstanding there. I will check into that later.
