Yes, you would hope that that would be the case, but with subversion
*forgetting* the modified date-times, which make uses, when you get out
the files you will effectively end up with make performing a Build of
the entire project because it thinks that *every* file has changed!

Hopefully the bug/feature
(http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=1256) request can
be implemented soon, as this is the one major problem that is stopping
us from considering using subversion.

A "working directory" is just a piece of your local filesystem, so you
can certainly search in that. Searching in the repository itself...
maybe via WebDAV? I haven't tried that.

That's not a source control issue but rather a Makefile (or
equivalent) issue. If you change one file, that one file is changed.
If your build system is correctly designed, only the bits dependent on
that one file will rebuild.
