Are you able to access https://localhost/ with a web browser?
wget --no-check-certificate https://www.pfarrell.com/

It should not be firewall/iptables, because usually localhost
connections are allowed.

Also, note that subversion should ask you, whether you trust the
server certificate (and store a record of your acceptance as a file
in ~/.subversion/svn.ssl.server/ ). I do not know, but may be
something prevents it?

Can it be unability to encrypt it? E.g., the same as storing
clear-text passwords on some systems. I have never faced
such one, though.

Surely, you are not using --non-interactive.

Does that ~/.subversion/svn.ssl.server/directory exist already? Deleting it
should cause re-asking for the certificate.
Are access rights on ~/.subversion/ reasonable?

Is this svn client able to connect to external svn repositories, over
http or https ?

I am sorry, but I probably won't be able to help further. It is
going into specifics I am not familiar with.

Best regards,
