export timestamps

I've been working lately with Subversions, maintaining personal files on
my own computer, I'm using the Subversions Debian package which is still
version 0.16.0, first I wanted to say thanks, Subversions is great and
is already useable for me and is an enormous improvement over CVS which
I used so far.

My problem is that when I do 'svn export url' the last changed time of
the files is that of the export itself, while I expect it to be the time
of the last commit. I expect the same for a checkout.

The exact scenario is that when I maintain a Debian package I commit the
upstream version into its own vendor branch, and merge it into the
trunk, where I work on the Debian package. When I'm done commiting I do
the sequence:

1. svn export file:///home/svn/debian/easytag easytag
2. dpkg-buildpackage

Now the second stage goes through the Debian rules makefile and then
runs the upstream makefile which has an automake/autoconf system, and
having the Makefile.in newer than Makefile by ordering it tries to run
automake again, which is not what I want.
