Have you read the section about vendor branches on the svn book ?
I think it might be helpful to you.

Meanwhile, what about a workflow like this (just a thought):

- checkout ofbiz in its own subtree
- whenever you want to start a new ofbiz-based site, 'svn copy' the
ofbiz subtree to a new one (e.g. /site1)
- the ofbitz subtree can be kept up-to-date with the product repository
via the usual svn update command
- since all the sites are a copy of the same codebase, whenever an
update is made to the ofbiz subtree the changes can be propagated to
them as if they were branches of the same project.
