need help running svn_load_dirs.pl on windows

I need help running svn_load_dirs.pl on Windows XP with Subversion 1.0. I have
installed ActivePerl and am trying to run the following command:

svn_load_dirs.pl -t 1.0 file:///svn/vendortest/vendor/loadpng current e:\libs\loadpng-1.0

vendortest repos has vendor/loadpng dir. I presume current and 1.0 dirs will be
created by the script, but I don't get that far. It aborts with the following

Directory e:\libs\loadpng-1.0 will be tagged as 1.0
Please examine identified tags. Are they acceptable? (Y/n) Y

Checking that the base URL is a Subversion repository.
Running svn log -r HEAD file:///svn/vendortest/vendor/loadpng
'-' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.
E:\bin\dev\svn_load_dirs.pl: svn log -r HEAD file:///svn/vendortest/vendor/loadpng
failed with this output:

Press return to quit and clean up svn working directory:

(BTW, notice how the error message is printed backwards.)

As have been pointed out on this list before, svn_load_dirs.pl is not included
in the Windows installer. Messages on this list made me believe this is an
oversight, but maybe not? Anyway, I got it from the Subversion source
(subversion-1.0.0\contrib\client-side\svn_load_dirs.pl.in), or at
least I think I got the correct file, but the .in extension puzzles me.

I changed $svn from '@SVN_BINDIR@/svn' to simply 'svn' (since it is in PATH),
but otherwise I haven't modified the script. (Neither the readme nor the
Subversion book mentions anything about having to do so.)

Is it possible to get it to work?

Kind regards,
Daniel Schlyder
