If you do not need file:// access or otherwise have a situation where
JavaSVN is a good fit, then I would use JavaSVN. For the purposes of
svnAnt, I would think using the CLI adapter would also be a good fit.
Probably depends on what your script does.

AFAIK, the LD_LIBRARY_PATH issue is specific to the JVM. Apparently it
does not follow the "standards" of most operating systems. So I would not
be surprised if it doesn't work without it set.

That being said, if just setting that variable makes it work, I would
probably do it. Couldn't you just do it in the ant shell script? That
way you do not have to worry about any negative impacts on whatever else
you do.
