Setting of datestamps on update problem

      We are using svn to store art assets. In a working copy, we then
run build processes to convert the data to formats suitable for various
different targets (ie PC,Xbox etc..) These build processes rely on
timestamps in order to decide what is built, so for example we have a
file foo.jtd, which depends on, and stores target specific converted
data from say foo.tga


However, the timestamps set on files when user A does svn up are not the
same as when user B created/modified them, so file dependencies
sometimes don't work depending on the order that the files come down
from svn.


What we would like is for the modified time of files to be preserved
across commits/updates so that the dependencies between files work
