Sure it exists... the file in rev65 is the same one as in rev64. I'm not sure why you wouldn't deploy using all the files in a specific rev?
One thing we do, which may be what you are looking for is put dependencies in the repository. So, in our lib folder we have version X of log4net.dll. This is allways used to build the deployment. If the devs decide to start using version x.1 they would update the binary in the lib folder.

Subversion doesn't really work this way. You can basically ask for the file as it was in rev x. It may be the same in many revs of course.

You can use a tool like SubWCRev Program from the Tortoise project which will tag the header with the latest version that a file was modified in.
