I assume by ^ he means it the same way that SVN can use this when
specifying a URL within the working copy. IOW, he wants the
repository-relative path of the file not the complete URL.

As long as you are using SVN 1.8 or later you can now define custom
keywords. See:
https://subversion.apache.org/docs/release-notes/1.8#custom-keywords and
http://svnbook.red-bean.com/nightly/en/svn.advanced.props.special.keywords.html

It looks like %P is the value you would want to use.
