Echoing what others have said, you could potentially use a continuous build
tool like CruiseControl or Hudson. Or even you could just use "svnversion"
after each svn update and see if there is any change.

Having said that, I think running the build nightly (even if nothing
changes) is not a bad practice. You could potentially build incrementally
all day and at night do a clean build for example..
