Thanks for the info, I was able to reproduce the bug, and what fails is
not the compilation, but the test I run after the compilation.

$ strings /usr/lib/libsvn_subr-1.so.1.0.0 | egrep '(HOME|.subversion/servers)'

That is what I suspected, it is the svn library that tries to read/write 
in the users home, not my package. I'll write a work-around, but it is
pretty silly to me that just mipsel buildds define HOME pointing to a
directory that exists but is not writeable...

Thanks to everybody
