When using svn+ssh://, yes, you'd be using port 22. But when using
the svn:// protocol, you'd be using the svnserve port 3690.

svn:// and svn+ssh:// work differently. svn:// connects over 3690 to
a running svnserve daemon on the server. svn+ssh:// does not make use
of any running daemon; rather, it starts svnserve itself every time
you connect, and stops it when you're done. So svnserve needs to be
in the path of the connecting user. It isn't, hence the error that it
can't find the command svnserve.
