I can't see anything wrong with the command. The only tricky part is the
strip-prefix value. It should be the first part of the file name that is
included in the output of svn -v --xml log.

I think php sends the exec command to a shell so the quotes should not
be a problem.

If you want to construct the command yourself you chould try to see what
svn2cl does:
  sh -x /path/to/svn2cl -i
Another alternative is to just call svn2cl from PHP. Btw, you can pass
the repository location to svn2cl. So you could do:
  svn2cl -o /path/to/ChangeLog file:///srv/svn/myrepos/trunk

Hope this helps.
