Where I worked several years back, we overcame the compatability
problems (Linux vs Windows) by not having the "shared" files under
direct version control at all. One person was then made responsible for
periodically copying the shared files over the top of a revision
controlled set and committing the changes.
It's a bastard way of getting any semblance of revision control and
everybody misses out on the wonderful file differencing ability that
TSVN provides. (amongst other things).

I can strongly recommend getting everyone to have their own WC, to
commit and update regularly and enjoy the enormous benifits that brings.
