Newbie question: svn:ignore ignored?

I have just started using svn on Mac OS X with XCode a few days ago.
I am really happy with the system (great improvement compared to CVS
and CA's Harvest CC), but I do have a problem using the svn:ignore

I want svn to ignore all files in the "build" subdirectory, so I went
into the "working copy"'s project directory and set the svn:ignore
property to "build" with (from memory):

svn propset svn:ignore 'build' .

The project directory is the immediate parent directory of the
"build" directory whose files I want to be ignored.

When I did my commit the meta data of the directory was correctly
saved and I can see that it has been applied using svn propget.

Unfortunately this does not result in the behavior I want. Each time
I do an svn status, I still see the build directory and its
subdirectories with the "? I'm not under version control" symbol.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks for your insights,

Best regards,

Frank Reiff
