It is unclear which type of server are you using.
Apache HTTPD with mod_dav_svn, or svnserve?

For svnserve, you can specify a path in svnserve's config file:
  hooks-env = /path/to/a/global/hooks-env/file

The environment specified in the referenced file will then apply
to all repositories. The referenced file's syntax is shown in the
hook.env example you've alreay found.

For mod_dav_svn there is a similar configuration directive called
SVNHooksEnv which also points to a file.

Could you please point us at the docs you were reading which were
unclear? Maybe they need to be adjusted or updated.  Thanks.
