You can't ignore a versioned file. It just isn't possible with svn.

If you are ok with deleting it from the repository so you can ignore it, you should copy it out of the WC, do the delete and ignore then copy it back into your WC.

If you want to ignore it but is must be in svn then add it to the ignore-on-commit change list.
