trouble with svn+ssh "svn: Connection closed unexpectedly"

I am having trouble with ssh access on a Linux system (SuSE 9.1) -
this is on a 1.2 that I built and installed.

I am getting the following complaint from svn (details below)

bash: line 1: svnserve: command not found
svn: Connection closed unexpectedly

Any hints as to where to look further?

ssh-agent is running and my credentials are loaded. If I run "ssh
my-home" it just works.

This is how I have manually invoked svnserve (and the feedback) (I get
the same problem if I do or don't use the root option)

me@my-home:/repos/opencores> /usr/local/bin/svnserve -t --foreground -r .
( success ( 1 2 ( ANONYMOUS EXTERNAL ) ( edit-pipeline ) ) )

This is what happens when I try to list what is in the repository:

me_at_my-home:~/.ssh> svn list svn+ssh://my-home-1/trunk
bash: line 1: svnserve: command not found
svn: Connection closed unexpectedly

This a normal ssh test (shell to self) - no additional effort on my
part as the credentials are already held in the ssh-agent

me@my-home:~/.ssh> ssh my-home

Have a lot of fun...
me@my-home:~> (this is an ssh subshell prompt)

By the way, if I run "svnserve -d -r ." instead, the following works
(in other words, there really is a valid repository)

me_at_my-home:~> svn list file:///repos/opencores/trunk

Thanks folks, John
