Sounds good to me.

I'm not sure why you're having to edit commit-email.pl. It's supposed
to be a self-contained script that just works. It already uses the
absolute path to sendmail (/usr/sbin/sendmail -- ok, if your sendmail
is in a different place then I'd understand why you had to edit it)
and svnlook (@SVN_BINDIR@/svnlook, where @SVN_BINDIR@ is replaced
during installation with the correct value). $repos also looks like
it is taken from the argument passed to the script, so you should not
need to change the way it's used in the script; you should just pass
your repository path to the script, exactly as the example shows:

commit-email.pl "$REPOS" "$REV" commit-watchers@example.org

If you run "env -i ./post-commit" on the command line, does it still
work? "env -i" ignores environment variables. So if it then fails to
work, you may still have relative paths around somewhere.

Another possibility: make sure the user under which your repository
runs (for example the apache user if you're serving under apache) has
the ability to read and execute the hook script and the commit-email
script.
