I think the default global-ignores get written into any new config
files Subversion creates for you. So you could run:

$ svn --config-dir /tmp/svn 2>/dev/null

and then examine the global-ignores line in the file /tmp/svn/config:

$ grep global-ignores /tmp/svn/config
### Set global-ignores to a set of whitespace-delimited globs
# global-ignores = *.o *.lo *.la *.al .libs *.so *.so.[0-9]* *.a
*.pyc *.pyo
