Yes, this is the intended behaviour. And this is very convenient when
you are managing source files with SVN, because after a checkout, a
simply "make" call will automatically rebuild all the files that have
been updated by svn.

You can instruct svn to use the last commited time as timestamp
instead. See the description of the "use-commit-times" flag in the
subversion config file:
