I'm not sure, I just assumed that, since the error message said "usr/bin/ssh", which is not a valid path, instead of "/usr/bin/ssh", that something must be telling Subversion to use that wrong path. Do you perhaps have an environment variable set (such as SVN_SSH) that mentions that path? Or something in your .profile, .bash_profile, .bashrc, etc.?

P.S: If you're building from source, why use an old version? If you require the 1.6.x branch for some reason, then 1.6.17 is the latest version of that branch, but 1.7.2 is the latest stable version, so I recommend you use that instead.
