svn and dates

Hi All,

I saw something about this go by a few weeks back but at the time I didn't
care and deleted the thread, but I have a quick question about how file
dates / timestamps are treated in SVN. Is is possible to have svn treat
a date change to a file as a substantive change (i.e. update the actual
repository if just the date has changed on a file, where the contents
are the same)? I would like to check in untarred source archives that
have configure and configure.in thingies, and where things like automake
or autoconf will be run, which will result in many Makefile.in's remaining
the same except that their timestamps change. I dont want the autotools
to be required on all build systems, so I want developers to be able to
extract a tree and build, which wont be possible if the timestamp changes
are not recorded.

Thank you for any information.
