I added the print statement below to the script.
   # Path to svnlook utility
   svnlook = "@SVN_BINDIR@/svnlook"
   print "svnlook:", svnlook

Here's what I get:
   $ ./hot-backup.py.in repo repobackups
   svnlook: @SVN_BINDIR@/svnlook
   Beginning hot backup of 'repo'.
   Traceback (most recent call last):
     File "./hot-backup.py.in", line 98, in ?
       youngest = string.strip(stdout_lines[0])
   IndexError: list index out of range

Which hardly looks right. Here's what is needed:
   $ whereis svnlook
   svnlook: /usr/bin/svnlook /usr/share/man/man1/svnlook.1.gz

So should I just hack the script and add the path or is it looking for
an env variable?

Thanks,
Michael
