If the files are in different folders, then you can do a shallow
checkout at the top level and then selectively increase the depth to
fetch only those subfolders that you actually want.

If they're mixed in the same folder, then you're basically out of luck.
  SVN is designed to operate mainly at the folder level for updates.

You may need to reorganise your source tree to accommodate what you're
wanting to do. You'll have to decide whether or not that's worth it. :)
