I don't know your options with Putty, but it's not the only ssh choice
in Windows. I use the OpenSSH implementation from Cygwin, and (since
it's called ssh and is on my path) don't need an SVN_SSH variable.

SVN allows you to specify username and host in the URL (e.g.
svn+ssh://me@host.com/repos), and OpenSSH supports public key pairs so
passwords aren't prompted every time.
