In the ~/.subversion/config file, you can set diff-cmd to your
desired diff program, but there's no way to send any additional
parameters to that diff program, besides the parameters that
Subversion already sends. So the only way I can think of to do this
is to write a wrapper diff program. For example:

In ~/.subversion/config, add this line:

diff-cmd = /usr/local/bin/diffignorewhitespace

The contents of /usr/local/bin/diffignorewhitespace would be:

diff --ignore-space-change "$@"

(Means: prepend "--ignore-space-change" to the parameters Subversion
is already sending -- "man diff" on my system does not show an "--
ignore-eol-style" parameter, but maybe your diff is different or
newer than mine.)

Make sure /usr/local/bin/diffignorewhitespace has been given the
execute bit:

chmod 755 /usr/local/bin/diffignorewhitespace
