No, those are local settings per user:

[stsp at ted ~]$ grep ignore ~/.subversion/config 
### Set global-ignores to a set of whitespace-delimited globs
### which Subversion will ignore in its 'status' output.
# global-ignores = *.o *.lo *.la #*# .*.rej *.rej .*~ *~ .#* .DS_Store

Just stick the patterns you want ignored into ~/.subversion/config

As far as I can tell there is now way to set it on the server side
unless we add that property to *all* directories in the tree.
I don't really think this is worth it..
