You could write a wrapper script to do the checkout and switch.

As another thought, could you set the make file to switch the directory
appropriately? I've never done much with creating make files, so I
don't know what is and is not possible, but it should work--and svn
switch on an already switched directory (as I understand it) doesn't do
anything, so after the first make, you shouldn't see any slowdown.
