When you 'svn add *.dfm', a heuristic should have already detected the
files as binary, and set the mime-type prop to
application/octet-stream. Did this not happen for you?

By the way, I just tried

    svn propset svn:mime-type foo/bar *.txt

And it worked just fine. 'svn propset' takes any number of targets.
What kind of error did you get? Did you forget to 'svn add' the files
first? Files can't have properties until you make the revision
control system aware of them first. :-)
