Hook scripts cannot help you here because they operate at the server
side, not the client side.

This sounds like a great place for a homemade script. Write this
script to do the right thing regardless of what directory it's called
from. Use the script instead of manually running "svn commit". If you
fear people will forget and run "svn commit" anyway, install shell
aliases or similar to wrap "svn commit" and either print an error
message or run your script automatically.

In any case, Subversion provides no built-in facility to help you
with this request.
