You note in your first sentence that this really falls under the "build
control" aspect of configuration management, not "revision control" (the
role that Subversion provides). Historically, most people wrote a "make
dist-clean" Makefile target for this, something like:

dist-clean:
    @rm -f *.o *.exe *core *.dump *~ *.obj *.stackdump
    @ls | egrep -v '\.(h|c|cpp)$' | grep -v Makefile | xargs rm -i

Anyway, I personally like to maintain architectural distinction between
revision control and build control. Mixing the two functions can
complicate things down the road...
