Change the ownership of the files to whomever accesses the repository.
I *hope* this isn't root.

When someone is having hook problems I ask them to run the program like
so with an empty environment.

$ env -i /path/to/hook/script.pl

For more info try:
$ man env

> /local1/svn/hooks/commit-email.pl "$REPOS" "$REV" -s "SVN Notification: "

  ^^^^^^---- Why exit 2? Shouldn't this make all commits fail? I
guess this is one way to test if your hooks are firing.
