The test should create a file called

subversion/tests/clients/cmdline/repositories/prop_tests-11/hooks/pre-revprop-change

it should be executable, it should contain

#!/bin/sh

exit 0

If you run it from the command line it should produce no output and
the return value (use echo $?) should be zero.

How can it fail? The shell will effectively be started by the svnserve
process. Perhaps solaris doesn't have /bin/sh? Perhaps you have a
.profile that is causing an error?
