You could probably abuse my svnhookdispatcher script to solve this
problem.

http://www.ryandesign.com/svnhookdispatcher/

My script exists so that you can run implement hook scripts after
checkouts, updates, switches and exports (hooks which Subversion
doesn't provide). It works by parsing Apache's Subversion access log.
That log can contain the hostname, port and whatever other standard
Apache information you're looking for. svnhookdispatcher doesn't pass
this on to the hooks it implements, though it could be enhanced to do
so. svnhookdispatcher also doesn't call the standard post-commit or
post-revprop-change hooks since Subversion already handles that,
though again it could be changed to do so.

If you end up implementing any of this, I wouldn't be opposed to
receiving patches. :)
