libsvn_client is the C level library that corresponds to the perl
module SVN::Client. libsvn_ra is the C level library that corresponds
to SVN::Ra. Both of these generally communicate with the repository
over the network.

libsvn_repos and libsvn_fs are the C level libraries for talking
directly to a repository (in Perl that's SVN::Repos and SVN::Fs), they
give you a different kind of API, one that lets you do a lot of the
kind of things you're trying to do, but yes, you do have to be on the
same machine as the repository itself.
