no, if I understand him right, he talkes about builds,
i.e. generated binaries. He wants to maintain diffs of
them?

Assen,

it seems, that your problem is closely related to the
"vendor brances" where you check in a series of sourcecode
of third party libraries. You can than create a diff on
the vendor branch and patch this onto your own (probably
modified) version of the third party library on main thunk.

See the book, Chapter 7 (Advanced Topics/Vendor Branches).
There is a reference to a script svn_load_dirs.pl
If I understand right, this does what you wants.

Hope this helps,
