No, it is not possible. Subversion is designed to version all
contents (except revision properties of course). There is no way to
turn it off, as it's its primary function. If you don't want
something to be versioned, don't put it in the repository. Share it
with a different file sharing mechanism instead, like a Samba share,
NFS mount, AppleShare volume, web page, email attachment or whatever.
