Try looking at a continuous integration tool to manage build objects.
Based on what I've heard in passing when I was only half paying
attention, I think Hudson saves off builds to make future builds faster.
Although you might need to do something like give each developer their
own Hudson build project so they can build independently. End result is
that Hudson manages the build objects instead of subversion or the
developer. (Hudson works with subversion.)
