You cannot currently avoid this. The ability to have a working copy
without .svn directories has been requested:

http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=525

This was supposed to be a Google Summer of Code project this year. I
don't know if it got completed.

The ability to have the .svn directories compressed is also an
existing request:

It is useful to version third-party code, and the process of doing so
is described in the book in the section on vendor branches:
