There aren't many ports overriding or augmenting the fetch phase. valgrind-devel is an example, but it shows using svn to fetch an additional repository.

Instead, you'd be using curl to download the file into ${distpath}. You'd want to check first to make sure the file isn't already there.

I also don't know how checksum verification will work -- whether MacPorts will do checksum verification for fetch types other than the default http. If not, you may have to switch things around -- have MacPorts fetch the http files and checksum them, and in the post-fetch block you use svn to get the rest.
