Not entirely sure I understand your question.

As far as I can see (using ant -verbose), a new svn.exe (or just "svn" on UNIX) is spawned for each subcommand of <svn> within one script.

Which svn command line client (of possibly several ones installed on a system) is actually invoked by svnClientAdapter depends on what's available in your PATH environment variable.

I would have thought that supplementing the path by setting java.library.path in ANT_OPTS as follows would also work, but apparently it doesn't:

set PATH=D:\Opt\Ant\bin
set ANT_OPTS=-Djava.library.path=C:\Programme\SlikSvn\bin

That's probably because java.library.path is for libraries and not for executables.
