I had exactly this problem with sword svn when there were spare bits
of the older sword still in place; something (I don't know exactly
what) confused sword about the location of things it expects to find.
Going through very carefully to remove _everything_ sword-related from
my system, then re-building sword svn from scratch, made it work OK.

I'm running Linux (FC5).  I had to make sure that all was gone from
/usr/share/sword, /usr/lib/*sword*, /usr/lib/pgkconfig/sword.pc,
/usr/bin/<all the sword utils>, /usr/include/sword, ...

When I rebuilt, I also let it build --prefix=/usr/local.
