It sounds like the error message is telling you that the program 'usr/bin/ssh' does not exist. This is not surprising; I would have thought this should say '/usr/bin/ssh' (with a leading slash).

How did you install Subversion? Does /usr/bin/ssh exist and work? If so, you may need to rebuild Subversion and either tell it or let it figure out on its own where ssh is on your system.
