It is my understanding that svn:ignore only ignores files that are not
already under Subversion's control. Since it shows build.properties as
"M", someone has already told svn to be responsible for it's contents.

You will need to release svn from controlling the file before it will
consider ignoring it. I believe .cvsignore works in this same way.

Also, one of the things that bit me early in my svn usage was that
properties are also controlled, so make sure you checkin the directory
you just propset upon.
