svn: Can't create tunnel: The system cannot find the file specified.

Platform: Windows 2008 server, Collabnet svn command line client 1.5.0

I have a checkout, using the svn+ssh protocol, made with TortoiseSVN,
using putty as the ssh client.

I have now installed the Collabnet command line client, so that I can
use vc in GNU Emacs on the checked out files.

However the command line client fails with the message
 svn: Can't create tunnel: The system cannot find the file specified.
so it doesn't find, or use, the same ssh support by default.

I've googled for the error message, and it seems that I have to change
the config to point to the full path to plink.exe.

The question is where to do it. TortoiseSVN has created
under my user profile. However:
 1. I don't know if svn.exe will use this config
 2. as far as I can tell, there are no references to plink.exe in the
    config in this directory

In one of the google matches I saw someone putting plink.exe into the
same directory as svn.exe, so I tried copying plink.exe and pasting it
into the same directory as svn.exe, but that didn't work either.

So does anyone know what the exact file and config to change to make
svn.exe use putty? There is no .subversion subdirectory in my user
profile? I've also set HOME to point to my user profile (to make GNU
emacs pick up its configuration correctly), perhaps that affects things?
