This topic been discussed here several times before. It seems that you
still have some debris of an old Subversion version on your computer,
probably from a Subversion package provided by the (Linux) distribution.

The user tools may have been replaced by the new version but not the
svnserve file which will be started during system boot. For user root
usually /usr/local/bin is not included in the search path. And there
also will be a absolute path to the old svnserve in the startup scripts.

You can find out which svnserve is running with "lsof | grep /svnserve".

With best regards
