Those are not environment variables. Where those words appear in the on-line
help, they are just descriptive place-holders for command-line parameters.
Those words should only appear within the help text, and not, for instance, in
the output from commands other than "help". So they should be translated - for
example:

"svn propdel PROPNAME -- delete the property PROPNAME"

"svn propdel NOM_DE_PROP -- effacer la propriété nominé NOM_DE_PROP"
