svnpoller will probably do what you need to do at this point. Adding a
post-commit hook would minimize both the load on the SVN repository and
reduce the latency of the builds, but if your admin is reluctant to modify
the repository setup, then the svnpoller is a way for you to get your
buildbot up and running without their involvement.

They might come knocking on your door in a few weeks, complaining that the
poller is causing too much load on the repository machine. At that point you
get to choose between slowing down the poller (and thus causing your builds
to occur later), or talking them into installing the post-commit hook.

good luck,
