Something is terribly wrong. I don't know if it's the versions of the libraries being picked up or what, but something is definitely wrong here.

Instead of thinking that the bug is in Subversion, perhaps we should take a different approach and start looking at the executable and things around it. Have you tried taking a look at 'ldd svnlook'? Does anything strange show up there? How about using strace and ltrace to see where things are falling over?

I suspect there is some sort of library issue here. Can you try some of the above things and see what you turn up? FWIW, I've never seen an issue list this (and I've been watching the list for over 3 years!).
