Unfortunately, it seems that fixing this will require changes to APR.
We can use apr_procattr_error_check_set to make apr_proc_create try to
verify that what we're executing exists and is readable/executable, but
that will currently only work if you're using APR_PROGRAM or
APR_PROGRAM_ENV, or if the first character of the program is a /. In
all other cases, there's a todo comment about searching PATH for the
program, but currently it isn't done. We're using APR_PROGRAM_PATH,
and the SVN_SSH probably won't be an absolute path, so that won't work
for us at the moment.
Anyone feel like writing some APR code?
