Did you miss Albert Shih's reply (slightly modified)?

You can then clearly define as many transports as you like, which
requires no setting of environment variables and is shell-agnostic.

Full details are described in the redbook:
http://svnbook.red-bean.com/nightly/en/svn.serverconfig.svnserve.html#svn.serverconfig.svnserve.sshauth

In fact, if you had read the svn+ssh portion of the redbook, you would
have come across this sentence:

"This example demonstrates a couple of things. First, it shows how to
make the Subversion client launch a very specific tunneling binary (the
one located at /opt/alternate/ssh) with specific options. In this case,
accessing a svn+joessh:// URL would invoke the particular SSH binary
with -p 29934 as arguments — useful if you want the tunnel program to
connect to a non-standard port."

Reading the manual is good.
