Plan B might be to use svn_load_dirs.pl: http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/subversion/trunk/contrib/client-side/svn_load_dirs/

It has a "glob_ignores" option, or will try to read your global-ignores from your local svn config file.

From the script:
# If no glob_ignores specified, try to deduce from config file,
# or use the default below.
my $ignores_str =
    '*.o *.lo *.la #*# .*.rej *.rej .*~ *~ .#* .DS_Store';

if ( defined $opt_glob_ignores)
    $ignores_str = $opt_glob_ignores;
elsif ( -f "$ENV{HOME}/.subversion/config" )
    open my $conf, "$ENV{HOME}/.subversion/config";
    while (<$conf>)
        if ( /^global-ignores\s*=\s*(.*?)\s*$/ )
            $ignores_str = $1;
