Well, I don't know if there is a better solution, but has a dirty work
around, you can checkout the revision 0 of the URL and run svn info on
the directory created. Revision 0 is always empty, so it doesn't take
much time or space.

Ex:
###################
$ svn co -r0 http://svn.collab.net/repos/svn tmp
Checked out revision 0.
$ svn info tmp
Path: tmp
URL: http://svn.collab.net/repos/svn
Repository UUID: 65390229-12b7-0310-b90b-f21a5aa7ec8e
Revision: 0
Node Kind: directory
Schedule: normal
Last Changed Rev: 0
Last Changed Date: 2001-08-31 00:23:30 -0400 (Fri, 31 Aug 2001)

$ rm -rf tmp
###################

Be sure to specify the root of the repository in the URL, since nothing
else exist under it at r0

Hope it can help...
