If many developers need the same subset of folders, you could create a
separate folder in your repository and add the svn:externals property to
it with all the folders you need. Then your users can checkout that
folder (named e.g. project_lite) and the svn:externals property will
make sure they'll get all the folders they need without getting the
whole project.
If every developer needs his own subset of folders, you could create a
'private' folder for each developer.
Just be aware that you have to commit each external folder separately.
