If you downloaded svn_load_dirs.pl.in from the Subversion repository,
then you should replace "@SVN_BINDIR@" with the directory where
Subversion is installed on your system, and save the file as

The first line of the script is "#!/usr/bin/perl -w" which means if
you give svn_load_dirs.pl the execute bit (as you've done with your
chmod command) and try to run it, it will try to run /usr/bin/perl.
Does perl exist and work on your system?

What is your OS? What version of Subversion?
