While examining your error message above I see that the checkout has
reached into the Lazarus svn command and stopped at the test stuff, so
this really means that it has started working on the svn co command
and downloaded FPC plus a lot of Lazarus files, but failed due to
networking errors.

I have copied out the lines in my script that use svn to get the
sources and modified the LAZTAG, FPCTAG, FPCVER and LAZVER variables
so it all reads as follows:


function error_exit
# ----------------------------------------------------------------
# Function for exit due to fatal program error
#  Accepts 1 argument:
#  string containing descriptive error message
  echo "${PROGNAME}: ${1:-"Unknown Error"}" 1>&2
  exit 1

echo "Downloading version $FPCVER of FPC"
cd "$FPCDIR" || error_exit "$LINENO: Cannot access directory $FPCDIR!
svn co "https://svn.freepascal.org/svn/fpc/tags/$FPCTAG" "$FPCVER" ||
error_exit "$LINENO: Cannot download fpc sources! Aborting"

echo "Downloading version $LAZVER of Lazarus"
cd "$LAZDIR" || error_exit "$LINENO: Cannot access dir $LAZDIR!
svn co "https://svn.freepascal.org/svn/lazarus/tags/$LAZTAG/test"
"$LAZVER" || error_exit "$LINENO: Cannot download Lazarus sources for
$LAZVER! Aborting"

Then I ran this new script on the RPi3-Stretch machine I had earlier
installed on. There were no errors shown and the reported file in your
error was successfully checked out.

What kind of network connection do you have? I am on 250/100 Mbit/s
fiber myself.
