Ok, _that's_ really a very, very bad idea! I don't think I've ever seen
any IDE that would do that!
If you can, then you really should change the output path of your object
and executable files. It's not just better for any source control system
out there but also better for you - you'll find the source files to work
on much easier...

TSVN settings dialog, exclude patterns. Note: those patterns are case

Use the "remove" command from the TSVN context menu. After you've
deleted those object and executable files, you can commit and they won't
be versioned anymore. But they will still be stored in the repository,
i.e. if you check out the revision before, you will get those files back.
The only way to permanently and completely remove those files from the
repository too is to use the svnadmin command (part of the Subversion
command line package):
svnadmin dump > repodump
svndumpfilter [some options] repodump > repodumpfiltered
svnadmin load < repodumpfiltered
