The svnserve daemon is started from /usr/local/etc/rc.d/svnserve. I need to
pass the environment variable KRB5_KTNAME=/home/svn/svn.keytab to the
daemon on start. How do I do that?

I tried to do this via a login class for the svn user, but it did not
work. If I first 'su -l svn' and then start the daemon manually, the
environment variable is set all right, but not when it is started from

All this is happening on 8.1-RELEASE-p2.
Thanks in advance for any help.
