Timestamp help....

I am looking for SVN to allow a user to upload a repository to an SVN
server with original timestamp info and pull that orig timestamp info
back down? Have a program that has a bulky DB of it's own that we do not
want to put into SVN. We just want to manage the sources with SVN. When
you pull down a working copy and then move the program's /DB directory
preserving the original timestamp information into the path of the SVN
sources, SVN has affixed the commit time timestamp and not the original
timestamp.... I then fire up the program and hit the compile button. The
program compares the timestamp of the SVN sources to the files in the DB
and sees the sources as being "Newer" due to the commit timestamp so it
recompiles. We cannot afford a recompile if nothing has changed except
the timestamp since there is an un-deterministic nature of the compiled
output. (Means we have to unnecessarily re-verify the newly compiled
output)

It could take months of testing to reverify all of the recompiled
output. Any ideas?
