Question: Does SVNKit succeed in doing stuff, but with a lot of
prompts, or does it not do anything? If it is the latter, then maybe
SVNKit does not support the authentication system you are using. If
it is the former, then maybe it cannot write to the Eclipse .keyring
due to permissions or something along those lines?

I believe CentOS has RPM packages available for JavaHL. Try:

yum install subversion
yum install subversion-javahl

You can search the packages if that does not work. The naming of the
package that contains JavaHL is not consistent across distros.
