I searched Google for the string "Can't find a temporary directory:
Error string not specified yet" and found these threads about this
problem:

http://www.svnforum.org/2017/viewtopic.php?t=1091

http://www.svnforum.org/2017/viewtopic.php?p=6029

They suggest that this problem will occur if your APR is too old. You
should be using at least APR 0.9.7. What version are you using? What
OS is this running on? What version of Apache do you have? Note that
Apache and Subversion will both need to be compiled against the same
version of APR.

Are you also sure that you do in fact have a temporary directory
(such as /tmp on a Unix-like system) and that it is writable and that
there is some disk space left on that drive?
