`git svn` is implemented in Perl (which is supposedly bundled with your Git 
package, but I'm not sure), and "SVN.pm" is a Perl module (a library written in 
Perl, ".pm" stands for "Perl Module").

@INC is an internal variable used by Perl to locate its modules.
Its contents is partially inferred from the Perl's installation location and 
partially from the environment.

This [1] should help you get started with affecting @INC.

Thanks for the help guys. I got it working using --exec-path and PERL5LIB 
environment variable. But Matthieu is right, I should build it from source to 
do it properly.
