You need something like this (derived from SVN::Mirror::Ra):

http://pretzelnet.org/~epg/SVNAuth.pm

This isn't a perl specific issue; everyone who wants to write to
the svn API from any language has to reinvent the auth prompting.
Obviously it makes sense for a GUI to reinvent this, but i think
it would be nice if libsvn_client included prompting functions
people could use or override, rather than forcing everyone to
roll their own. Oh well :).
