Just some additional informations. I found out the main reason for my svn(lite) 

root at pizelot:/usr/src # svnlite update
Updating '.':
svn: E170013: Unable to connect to a repository at URL ''
svn: E000060: Error running context: Operation timed out

root at pizelot:/usr/src # host is an alias for has address has IPv6 address 2001:41c8:112:8300::e6a:0 mail is handled by 0 .

root at pizelot:/usr/src # ping6
PING6(56=40+8+8 bytes) 2a01:c08:0:5::3 --> 2001:41c8:112:8300::e6a:0
--- ping6 statistics ---
24 packets transmitted, 0 packets received, 100.0% packet loss

IPv6 connection is prefered before IPv4 (there is no failover 
to v4). When deconfiguring v6, svn update works like expected.

I've not found an option to tell svn to prefer the ipv4 address
(it's only possible to manipulate the svn server URL or change 
the systemwide address selection).
