You may want to run a simple local http proxy that itself can use
a SOCKS5 proxy to access the internet (polipo may be a candidate).

If you only need to access a specific SVN host you may also
run a port forwarder that can use SOCKS5. Or do 'ssh -L
localport:desthost:destport helperhost' when you have something
ourside you can ssh to, and use netcat as a proxy command to
get through the socks proxy.

tsocks is by definition a hack that can't work in all circumstances.
