Auto-props - can I override the config file?

Our svn config file contains the line:
*.v = svn:eol-style=native;svn:keywords=Date Author Id Revision HeadURL
This assumes that .v files are Verilog text files. However, one of our developers has a third party encrypted .v file that he wants to add. The file is binary because it is encrypted. This causes a conflict with the eol-style auto-prop and he gets error:
"myfile.v has binary mime type property"
and the commit fails.
My question is, can I set properties on the file's parent folder to override the auto-prop settings in the config file for *.v files, such that the eol-style will not be applied to *.v files added to that folder?
Or can I set properties on the file prior to committing it, in such a way that the auto-props will be ignored?
