i did something like this on my svn1.1.1 for my backup/hook script

# create backup dir
mkdir /var/SVN/SVNBackup
# make apache owner of the backup dir
chown -R nobody:nogroup /var/SVN/SVNBackup
# copy template
cp $SVN_HOME/repos/project1/hooks/post-commit.tmpl
# change mode
chmod +x $SVN_HOME/repos/repos1/hooks/post-commit
# change owner
chown -R nobody:nogroup $SVN_HOME/repos/repos1/hooks/post-commit
# modify post-commit
vi $SVN_HOME/repos/repos1/hooks/post-commit
(cd /usr/local/svn/repos/repos1/hooks;
/usr/local/svn/bin/hot-backup.py ${REPOS} /var/SVN/SVNBackup &)
# Now every commit, SVN will backup to SVNBackup
