Consider always branching for a release. Branch (svn copy) as
the first step, then checkout that working copy. If it builds,
great. If it doesn't, the developer responsible checks their
fix into mainline and svn merges that into the branch and
also commits it there. You then re-spin the build by doing
an update on the build machine (which is "looking at" the
branch, which only has that one change) and continuing.

That would work on Unix shells as they expand the arguments before
running the svn command. Doesn't work in cmd, as cmd doesn't work
that way.

However, you can use a response file with the --targets command,
so you can

dir /b *.rc > files.lst
svn ci -m "Updated by the build" --targets files.lst
