The key piece of information in your message is the HTTP response code:
"407 Proxy Authentication Required"

This means that the proxy server requires you to supply the appropriate
username/password before it will process your request.

I'm not sure, but I don't think that Subversion supports sending proxy
authentication right now -- if not, you may need to talk to your proxy
administrator and arrange a special rule.

Of course, authentication is only half the battle: once you've got
past that, you still need to make sure that your proxy server supports
WebDAV requests (PROPFIND, REPORT, etc) and that you are authorised
to use them.

If the repository and your client machines are behind the same firewall
though, you could simply bypass the proxy and contact the repository
server directly.

I hope this helps.
