Subclipse uses the binaries you can download from
subversion.tigris.org. I do not know if they have this turned on or
off. I would expect that it supports SSPI. Try the command line you
can download from that location.

Also, I do not know if SVNKit supports SSPI. So you might check which
client you are using in the preferences. JavaHL or SVNKit.
