Ignore date changes to files

Hi. I'm new to subversion. I'm using it with TortoiseSVN.

One of the project I want it to manage is a desktop app being designed in a 4GL
programming tool. It's project files are saved as binary. Each time the
project is loaded *each* of it's libraries is touched and the file date is
updated, even if no changes are made to the code. This causes svn to update
each of the libraries in the commit, which is incredibly wasteful. Several
megabytes of files is uploaded with each commit even if I opened the project
just to change one line of code in a 25k file.

Is there any way around this? I previously used a commercial scm tool called
NG3, and it worked nicely for this project as it ignored dates and looked only
for actual binary changes in the files.
