The problem is that SVN wants to version those package names underneath the binary folder and their files even though I have not explicitly asked SVN to do so.  I've attached a screen shot which hopefully explains the issue.

Your build environment apparently is copying whole folders. Subversion
sees any folder containing a directory named .svn as versioned.
