SVN / Make Integration

So, I'm migrating our build to a non-recursive make. One adverse side
effect is that when somebody branches to fix a minor bug, in order to
use build their sub-project they have to checkout the entire branch
(which is huge). Previously somebody could checkout a smaller portion of
a branch to do their work. This was technically broken, but people got
by and now they're complaining.

What I would like to do is take the non-recursive build to it's logical
end, and create rules which will actually checkout files when required.

But, I can't figure out how to checkout all the Rules.mk files
exclusively, and in such a way that if you go to the root of the tree
and do something like an 'svn diff' it would see the tree in its
entirety, including any files which were later checked out.

Am I making any sense?
