Is there a way to clear/flush the dns cache at webfaction, I have a subversion server with dynamic ip, and want to flush de dns cache to force a new lookup in order to get the updated ip.

No; there is no way to directly flush the DNS cache on your WebFaction server. Instead, you should lower the TTL (Time To Live) for the domain which you are using to point to the dynamic IP address. TTLs exist to ensure that the domain IPs are up-to-date, and some domains require different TTLs than others.
