Right now you can't do that. When SVN 1.5 is released (best estimate
early June) there will be a 'sparse directory' option which allows you
to select the level of recursion used in each directory at checkout.
Subsequent updates will respect that choice.

That may not do what you want as it means you would not have that
directory fully checked out at all. Once a directory is checked out
there is no way for subversion to skip it during update. You would
have to ask for that on the subversion users list.
