Subversion doesn't have that functionality. A diff is a diff.

You may want to put this differing path into a non-versioned config
file. You can version a template of the config file and require
everyone to copy that template and fill in the actual path after
checking out a working copy. See this entry in the FAQ:

Ridiculous. You have sent your mail to a public Internet discussion
list which is distributed to hundreds or thousands of people and
archived on several web sites for all eternity where it can be read
by millions more. Please don't send mail to the list from accounts
that append such garbage.

Finally, you might get more responses in the future if you select
