I don't know what that means, but I can tell you what I wanted to ask...

Is there a way to specify the full path to svnserve when connecting to a
remote repository via svn+ssh? I have svnserve in a non-standard
location on machine A, and from machine B, all I have for conneting to
the repository is the ssh protocol. When I am on B, and try to do an
svn list svn+ssh://A/repository/location/ , it reports that it can't
find the svnserve executable on machine A.

This looks like the best solution I could come up with for your dilemma,
but my problem is not related. From a remote machine, I can't find the
svnserve executable in the limited PATH set when tunneling via ssh.

Thanks for your input though, and I hope my explanation is clearer this
time.
