ignore file in repository

I have a problem with (T)SVN, which I can not solve by reading the docs. I hope you can help me...

The situation: we have some file in our project, which are necessary to build and run the program. So, we put them into the repository. But the file in the repository is only a start point (a template) of the file. Each call of the program will change the file. What we want is, that these now changed files are ignored with later check in operations, so that there is no way to transfer these files back to the repository, even by mistake.

Is there a way to do this? We tried to set the "svn:ignore" property on the directory, but this did not work: I think, SVN ignore works only for files, which are not under version control??

Thanks for your help
