When using svn+ssh, to access a remote repository, you do not end up
with a shell on the remote machine. Secure shell makes use of an
environment file that sets you path to the bare minimum of directories.
  It accesses none of your shell settings stored in your home directory.
  I think the file is /etc/environment, but it may differ depending on
the brand of ssh (free or commercial).

I ran into this and tracked it down in the ssh (commercial version)
docs. It effectively limits me to accessing the repository on the
local machine only (rsh is a big no-no at my company), since I can't
convince anyone to add /usr/local or any other directories to this
file.

So it's not subversion's fault. Nor is it a Mac OS X problem, for that
matter.
