Thanks for your help! With your input I put together the following post-commit
hook which solved the problem for me.
# The following hook is used for website management: Upon detecting a commit
# to a certain project, a working copy of that project is updated and then
# rsynced with the real webpage, omitting the .svn directories of the working
/usr/bin/svnlook dirs-changed $REPOS -r $REV | grep $WEBSITE_PROJECT_NAME
if [ $? = 0 ]; then
# The following update will fail ("svn: Working copy locked") if the
# commit that has triggered this hook was called from within
# $WEBSITE_WORKING_COPY_PATH. However, this doesn't matter because
# either way we have an up-to-date copy in $WEBSITE_WORKING_COPY_PATH.
/usr/bin/svn update $WEBSITE_WORKING_COPY_PATH
/usr/bin/rsync -a --delete --exclude=.svn/ $WEBSITE_WORKING_COPY_PATH
