Ping is not DNS. Your server can respond to a ping without needing to
do a successful DNS lookup.

What happens if, on the server where svn is failing, you type in "dig
+short opensvn.csie.org"? If DNS on that server is working, then
you'll get the IP address back. If you don't get the address, or see
some sort of error, then you've got a DNS problem.

I suppose it's theoretically possible that when you compiled svn it
failed to link in the correct libraries to be able to successfully
call gethostbyname()... but that seems pretty unlikely.

By any chance did you compile this on one system and then move it to
another one? If so, check to make sure that all the relevant
libraries are present, and at the same version.
