The RedBean docs only show examples of using svn to read a .cvsignore file.

I can't figure out the proper syntax to tell it to ignore
a whole directory.

Specifically, a netbeans project's nbproject/private/
directory. I want all of ./private ignored

All redbean says is
svn propset svn:ignore -F .cvsignore .

thanks

1) cd to the parent folder of the folder you want to ignore.

2) svn propedit svn:ingore .

3) This will pop upon whatever editor is configured. Enter the files or folders you wish to ignore each on their own line.

4) Exit the editor.

5) Commit the change.

6) If it gives you guff (sometimes it does) update the current folder and try again.
