How to ignore a versioned subdirectory within the whole tree during svn update?

Hi,

Our team's whole repository tree is like:

build.xml
1.txt
2.txt
dir_a/
dir_big_and_un_related_to_me/
..
dir_h/

The dir_big_and_un_related_to_me/ is very, very big and it is not relevant
to my own work. Every time, when I run "svn update" at the top, I hope that
directory is ignored. But I don't know how to do it. I am wondering if svn
has a feature for this purpose. The whole tree has been checked out to my
local area. I just want to start from now on, ignore that big directory
when I do "svn update". I know there is "limit" option, but I am not sure
how to apply it in my case.
I don't want to go into individual subdirectories, skipping that
directory, to update because I will missing updating the files build.xml,
1.txt etc. And if somebody added a parrelel directory "dir_i", then I will
miss adding that to my local area.

Thank you very much.
