The attrib approach does work, although this sort of defeats the  
purpose/intent of the svn design. I do have a patch which fixes this in the  current 
makefile system. I have not pursued offering it since I knew the entire  process 
was being revised. I would be happy to provide it. In  and of  itself, it is 
not particularly large although it does require that all makefiles  be 
re-generated. If you would like it, please contact me off-list to discuss how  you 
would like me to package it.
