That is an OS error.  Subversion is providing you the "Cannot allocate memory"
message as a convenience, it's not producing the error.

Looking at the code I'd bet that fork() is returning ENOMEM on your system.

Add more memory to the system or figure out why the kernel doesn't think it has
enough memory.  Might want to check your configured ulimits as well.
