Doesn't WebSVN have it's own project discussion list? You might want
to post your question there.

The docs say that WebSVN calls the 'svnlook' binary, which does not
read any user's run-time directory. 'svnlook' is strictly a server
program. The run-time area is only for client behavior.

But the error you're getting seems to be coming from 'svn', not
'svnlook'. Perhaps WebSVN is calling 'svn'? And if so, try using 'svn
--config-dir /some/other/config/dir'.
