Is the subversion repository on the same machine as the webserver? If 
so, you don't even need a cronjob but a simple 'svn up 
/var/www/baypiggies' in the post-commit hook for the repository. 
Otherwise, the cronjob on the web server would look something like:

*/1 * * * * /usr/bin/svn up --username user --password shhh 

This example has it running every minute. And if the repository is 
world-readable (it should be) you wouldn't need the --username or 
--password arguments.
