I don't think so - that would just add the kBuild repo as another
remote clone of the main repo, which would not make sense. More likely
you'd want to use submodules.

You could always git-svn clone kBuild into a subdirectory and
gitignore that subdirectory. Of course you'll have to run git-svn
update separately on both the main and the kBuild repos each time.
