You can't. svn doesn't preserve ownership or perms, other than a
generic 'executable' concept.

'svn co/up' touches each file with 'now', so that tools like 'make' work
correctly. Your other option is to look in ~/.subversion/config and set
'use-commit-times=yes', which will force your working-copy files to have
the timestamp of the last time each file changed in the *repository*.
