Not as far as I know. If you are using TortoiseSVN, maybe something
can be done with client-side hook scripts [1], for example delete
unwanted files after exporting. Though I don't think there are
client-side hooks for the "export" operation.

I do think it would be a great feature though, to have --include and
--exclude options (with glob-like syntax, like our recent --search
option for 'svn ls') for certain svn commands. With server-side
support to only send the matching items (and falling back to pure
client-side filtering when talking to older servers). Then one could
do these as an efficient operation (if there is server-side support):

* svn cat -R --include '*.txt' $URL
* svn export --include 'build.xml' $URL (<- creating sparse directory
structure with only the matching files)
* svn export --exclude '*.iso' $URL
