From the error message you're getting, it looks like svn is having trouble resolving www.nlnetlabs.nl when your nameservers are IPv6. However, when your nameservers are IPv4, I suspect svn will still connect to www.nlnetlabs.nl over IPv6. You can use tcpdump to confirm, or if you have access to them, look at the logs on www.nlnetlabs.nl.

Also, which version of APR you're using (and how it was compiled) is
fairly important. You can determine the former by running the command

    svn --version --verbose

with the 1.8.x client, or

    apr-1-config --version

and you might get a hint about the latter by running

    apr-1-config --cppflags
    apr-1-config --cflags
    apr-1-config --ldflags
    apr-1-config --libs
