I assume you are talking about log when used with the --diff option?
I cannot think of any other scenario where this requests makes sense.

When I added the --diff option to 'svn log', I deliberately hard-coded
many of the available diff options to avoid growing 'svn log --diff' into
a full-blown complex replacement for 'svn diff'. I'm saying this to
explain why the --ignore-properties option exists for 'svn diff' but
not for 'svn log --diff' right now.

However, it is fairly easy to add more diff-related options to
'svn log --diff'. And in my opinion it's worth doing so in cases
where there is demand from users. So please go ahead and file an issue.
Then we can wait to see if somebody wants to submit a patch for this.
It's a good simple task for new contributors to tackle.
