This I believe relies on your emacs binary having support for svg
images.  You can check if emacs is linked against librsvg with the
following shell command (assuming you are on linux):
$ ldd `which emacs` | grep svg

Which should give you some line of output like
    librsvg-2.so.2 => /usr/lib/librsvg-2.so.2 (0xb6a86000)

Within emacs, M-: (image-type-available-p 'svg) RET should display t

In buffer viewing of svg works for me without any additional setup,
upon pressing C-c C-x C-v, in an emacs with svg support.

Yes.  I'm attaching the testsvg.org file (slightly modified from the
one you sent) and resultant latex export I get from the same git
version as you...as you can see, the [[file:mtcars.svg]] link is
translated into an \includesvg LaTeX command.  Does it work the same
for you?

:)  I'm in the doctoral program in linguistics at Penn, and a happy
emacs user for several years.  Here's to many more!
