If serving the repository via Apache, you can extract the client's IP
address and/or hostname from the Apache logs. The high-level Apache
log [1] and perhaps my svn-hook-dispatcher [2] could help further (if
you modify the dispatcher to also handle post-commit events, and
modify the log string passed to the hook dispatcher to include the
client's IP address, and modify the hook dispatcher to pass the IP
address to the hook scripts).

If serving with svnserve I know of no solution until enhancement 2409
is implemented. [3]

If serving via the file protocol the hook scripts will be running on
the client machine, since there is no server, so in the hook script
the IP address of the local machine will be the IP address of the
client. But you shouldn't be serving via the file protocol for
anything more than testing purposes with a single developer on a
single machine.
