Build directory structure different from repository

From: Lief Erickson <lerickson_at_mqsoftware.com>

I'm a writer who uses FrameMaker files, which are binary. My repository and working directory has a directory structure like this:

/product_docs
    /shared
    /book1
    /book2
    /book3
    /bookn

However, on my build machine the directory structure must change to allow the hyperlinks to work in the PDFs that I build. On my build machine the directory structure is:

/product_docs
    /shared
    /all

The /shared directory is the same in both places, but all of the files in the "/book" directories from the repository must now be in the /all directory on the build machine.

How would I set that up in SVN?

I've looked at the svn:externals feature, but I'm not sure it'll work. If it will, it's not clear how it should be set up so that the repository and all working copies are the same, except one -- the build machine.

Searching the archives turned up very little in the of FrameMaker, but a lot about svn:externals, but not my situation.
