As you've discovered, the normal mode of operation is to ignore derived files
(like *.o and *.a). You don't _need_ to use import to load the files, though.
See this link about in-place imports:


If you follow this example, you will be able to see that you can use 'svn add'
to load the vendor files (and hence you can set the svn:ignore first).

The other option is that files covered by svn:ignore are only skipped when not
explicitely cited on the command line. You can always do something like this:

        find . -name "*.o" > binaries.txt
        svn add --targets binaries.txt

which _will_ add those files to the repository.
