you can change it after the fact, but svn records the commit time per
revision (not per file).
The only way to have individual "Last Changed Date" for files is to
import them one by one (or grouped by mtimes).

If your are only interested in the information and don't need the
files mtime set on checkout, you could use a user defined file
property.
