To expand on this:

If you run Buildbot under a separate user ID, log in as that user (use
"su -s$SHELL" if the packager has not assigned a valid login shell to
the user) and run any SVN command that accesses that repository, e.g.:

svn list svn://

You will be prompted for authentication, and the default SVN settings
will store the credentials in ~/.subversion/auth/

You would need to do this once for each SVN repository that you access.
