svn propset svn:ignore foobar PATH ...

$ svn help propset
propset (pset, ps): Set the value of a property on files, dirs, or revisions.
usage: 1. propset PROPNAME PROPVAL PATH...
       2. propset PROPNAME --revprop -r REV PROPVAL [TARGET]

  1. Creates a versioned, local propchange in working copy.
  2. Creates an unversioned, remote propchange on repos revision.
     TARGET only determines which repository to access.

  The value may be provided with the --file option instead of PROPVAL.

  Note: svn recognizes the following special versioned properties
  but will store any arbitrary properties set:
    svn:ignore     - A newline separated list of file patterns to ignore.

Best wishes
