Another option is to set up an ssh host in your ~/.ssh/config and check
out from there:

Host mysvnalias
        HostName realsvnhostname
        IdentityFile ~/.ssh/no_passphrase_id_rsa

svn co svn+ssh://mysvnalias/...

Of course, using ssh-agent as Thomas suggested is a better idea than
using a passphrase-less key in the first place.
