Since all your projects are in one repository, you could create a tools
project and put the various in-house tools your team uses in there. Then
your uses would have a strong motivation to include that project in their
checkouts. of course, that means there will likely be multiple copies of
the tools on each user's PC.

Another option would be to put commands in the makefile or build script of
each project that will check for the hook scripts (or tools project) being
in the working copy and fetching them if they weren't.
