This is actually a problem with svn, so you'd get better advice on the svn
list.

Note that the error about svnserve happens during the ssh session. So it
isn't your bash shell giving the error but rather the shell at the other
end of the ssh connection.

svnserve is supposed to already be running on the server when you connect
to it (thus, it's a daemon). Though I believe in most installations, when
you connect over ssh, the daemon xinetd causes svnserve to run. Same
idea. So you need to have your sysadmin set up svnserve properly.
