Thanks Glen, but that didn't address my question.

I certainly found that mirrors url while reading these svn docs,

My problem was that checkouts were simply not working.

Thankfully, I figured out that I had a typo generated somewhere between 
my brain and the keyboard.

These work great:
# svn checkout https://svn0.us-east.FreeBSD.org/base/release/9.2.0 
# svn checkout https://svn0.us-east.FreeBSD.org/base/stable/10 ./10-STABLE
# svn checkout https://svn0.us-east.FreeBSD.org/base/head ./11-CURRENT

I had made a typo and put a '.' in my path,
#bad# svn checkout https://svn0.us-east.FreeBSD.org/base.release/9.2.0 
(likely was a copy/paste error from the docs pages... my bad.)
