Sounds like a permissions problem. What user is svnserve running as? The
hooks need to be executable by this user. Either this user should own the
files or the user should be a member of a group which owns the files. For
example, on my system, the subversion daemon runs as a user in the "svn"
group. My pre-rev-prop-change script is owned by root:svn and has the
set-group-id bit set.

-rwxrws--- 1 root svn 2039 Jun 29 18:03 pre-revprop-change*

The hook script should exit with a zero ("exit 0") for success or non-zero
("exit 1") for failure. Hope this helps.
