I guess you're using Jenkins or Hudson, right?
The auto update from svn/git/cvs could be done by the Jenkins job
configuration ("Source Code Management" section); this is
straightforward if you fetch from a single source repository...

does it take longer because a brand new svn checkout is performed, or
because the workspace needs to be materialized from scratch?
In the latter case, I've always thought that it is better to always
perform a brand new workspace materialization in a headless build... at
least that's what I saw in most examples (and it never gave me problems
in all my builds; on the contrary trying to do an incremental workspace
materialization always gave me troubles)... of course you can avoid
materializing the target platform itself over and over again, I was only
referring to materialization of projects in the workspace.
