The environment the hooks run in is different when invoked directly by
you, versus invoked by Subversion as part of a commit.

In the latter case, the hook program typically does not inherit the
environment of its parent process. For example, a common problem is
for the PATH ($PATH or %PATH, in Unix and Windows respectively)
environment variable to not be set to its usual value, so that
subprograms fail to launch unless invoked via absolute path. If
you're having unexpected problems with a hook program, the culprit is
probably unusual (or missing) environment variables like PATH.
