There isn't a variable SVNROOT. You give the URL you want to check
out in the "svn checkout" command.

Usually the directory is called "tags", not "tag", and since tags are
nothing special, just another directory, you must specify the tag
name as part of the checkout URL, just like you would for any other
part of the repository you wanted to check out.

So if you have a tag "foo" that you want to check out, and you are
using the standard naming of "tags" for the tags directory, then you
can check it out using:

svn checkout svn+ssh:username_at_svn.server.org/svn/ist-svn/projects/ist/
projectname/tags/foo wc

where "wc" is the name of the working copy that will be created locally.
