File under versioncontrol with individual changes per developer

Hello,

   I have a small problem with svn. There's a file
in the repository that needs to be changed by every
developer in order for the IDE to work properly.
Every dev needs to change a database path variable
in this file, so he has access to the db from within
the IDE, what's very helpful. The variable will get
changed if the program starts anyways, so the info
is only valuable to the IDE.
Well, this file needs to be under version control,
though, since there are other parts that'll change.
But everytime any developer does a commit, he overwrites
the file in the repos with his `new' version, where only
this variable changed. This leads to a huge version list
for this file of course, which is not needed.
And, if a dev updates, he overwrites his database path. So he
has to change it again after each update. This, too, is
pretty annoying.

Is there a way to `ignore' this file when doing a svn commit,
but make it possible to explicitly commit it via
svn commit <file>?
This would be really helpful.

Or perhaps you have other ideas how we could circumvent this.

Regards,
   Daniel Albuschat
