port sync + svn via ssh

my local ports tree is in an svn which I access via
svn+ssh and not http. When I simply log into the
svn+ssh server (via ssh) then authentication happens via
pubkey. But when called from a 'port sync', the
authentication falls back into password mode.

The port man page says that port uses the user
who owns the local port tree will be used for an
'svn update' and I can see the euid and egid being
set in macports.tcl. But svn/ssh apparently does
something else here then rely on these. Has anybody
an idea what to do to make this work or is running a
similar setup?
