Can the automatated process determine which file(s) is(are) necessary?

If so, you could have the different versions of the config files in a
separate directory, or directories, in the repository and then either export
or cat the one(s) you want depending on the platform.

Admittedly, it's not as easy from your standpoint as an "--export-ignore"
option, but it should work with svn's existing functionality. As in, you
can use it now, instead of waiting for a feature to be implemented.
