I'm not able to help with that because I'm not familiar with the Subversion source code.
But you understand why even if I knew I would be disinterested in helping you. The Subversion libraries have been in development for 11 years, work great, and do exactly what you want, but you're saying nope, you're going to recreate them from scratch, except it doesn't work all the time, so you ask for help from the group that answers questions about the libraries, whose members are obviously going to say this is an already solved non-problem: use the libraries.
If you can install PHP, why can't you install the Subversion libraries and PHP extension?
The Subversion libraries are going to continue to evolve, as is the network protocol. For example, Subversion used to only be able to use neon for talking to http servers, but now can use serf which perhaps offers better performance, and serf becomes the default in Subversion 1.7; which of these methods are you emulating? So this isn't even a one-time task you're contemplating; this is an ongoing duplicate maintenance effort you're committing yourself to.
