Subversion uses the file's last-modified timestamp as the first
indicator that the file contents have been changed. If that timestamp
has changed since the last checkout/update, it runs a hash on the file
to see if contents have changed.

If changing the PE header doesn't change the file's timestamp, then
Subversion won't notice that the file has changed.
