I personally used an options file with the following setting:
ctx.svn_property_setters = [
        '<path to svn config file>',

And my svn config file decides which are the binary files, through the
mime-type defined based on the file extension.

E.g. *.gif = svn:mime-type=image/gif;svn:needs-lock=true
and 'image/gif' is considered binary by svn because it does not start
with 'text/' (cf. SVN book, appendix B "Binary Files and Translation")
